1380Re: [John Muir Trail] Timing
- Jan 9, 2007Hi Jim,
For me, the best time is the end of May/early June.
At that time of the year one can expect to find plenty
of snow in the higher elevations/passes (trans highly
scenic), NO mosquitoes, few if any 'tourists (trans
day/weekend hikers), and the water running fast, fresh
and cold. Just my 2 cents.
