We now have 39 trips listed (with 95 hikers) in our collection of 2010 South Bound JMT hiking plans. Start dates run from now through early September. 3 more trips listed Northbound.
I know there are more of you out there. I'd
love it if you'd follow the links below and enter your trip plan.
The list is mostly designed to help group members hiking at about the
same time know how to look for each other. But it is also just interesting and gives people an idea of the range of ways one can do the JMT, e.g., times of year, alternate trailheads, paces, section hikes, etc.
Once you click on the link, it's easy to fill in the blanks and then click on the blue "Add record" button. Then you will join a date-sorted list of hikers going your direction.
I do feel compelled to add this WARNING: there may be privacy and personal safety
issues to think about here. Some believe that hikers who list their
schedules are exposed to extra risks - especially for solo women hikers.
The listing is available only to group members, not to the general public - so your listing is accessible only by the same people who can see your posting about your permit date. (But it is easy to become a member - I routinely approve membership requests.)
If you have trouble with the technical aspects, just send me the following info and I will enter it for you
