JMT east side Sierra access ride share available for July 5
- Anyone want to share a shuttle ride from Onion Valley (Independence) trailhead
parking area north to Mammoth or beyond? July 5 is the date. With 2 more
backpackers, the divided up cost will be $110 each, very cheap for trailhead to
Shuttling north allows a hike back through the prime interior sections of the
JMT without the longer time required to hike the entire trail. If you've done
the Yosemite Valley to Tuolumne and Onion Valley to Mt. Whitney sections as I
have, a central JMT hike makes great sense.
Tuolumne is booked except for walk ins, but Inyo NF trailheads like Rush Creek
still have reservations which can be easily booked online, unlike Yosemite.
Please move fast if you're interested!
