Re: [John Muir Trail] Permit clarification please
- Here's some info on permits:http://www.johnmuirtrail.org/permits.html
The answer is that you can get your permit from Yosemite, and go to Whitney on it. I advise that when they issue it, you make sure they give you the last night in inyo forest so you can stay at Trail Camp or Outpost Camp on the way down from Whitney.You don't have to stipulate that when you get the reservation for the permit, just when you pick it up. We actually never had any ranger check our permit on the JMT, but some people were freaking out when they thought they couldn't stay at Trail Camp.
