623RE: [John Muir Trail] Northern start of trail
- Oct 25, 2003That may be, but if you look at Winnett's mileage guide, where does it start
from? Happy Isles and that's the nuts and bolts aka bottom line. True that
there is a little confusion in places like when reaching Tioga Road and it's
safer to stay on the unofficial trail on the south of the road, but as I
understand it, the northern side is more official.
When I did it this summer, there were CCC crews that were diverting the
course of the trail in sections such as putting in a bridge to avoid the
"official" stream-crossing 150 meters downstream.
It's like the US Supreme Court. They are supposed to uphold the
Constitution, but time doesn't stand still and they can't make decisions
based on societal mores in the late 18th century.
Adapt and enjoy.

The two sources I have describing the start of the trail are
Winnett's John Muir Trail and Starr's Guide. Both refer to the Le
Conte Lodge as the start, but Winnett says the lodge was moved
some years ago.
