Re: [John Muir Trail] Re: question about Muir Trail Ranch
- You are correct that the Hiker Box buckets are available to all the backpackers.So take what is needed...
But, the Ranch does not haul it out as trash. Everything not used by the backpackers is donated to charities/shelters down in the valley...

There will probably be plenty of food in the hiker buckets (There are usually at least 5-10 buckets full of leftover, donated food/stuff) at MTR. The more of it you eat, the less they have to pack out as trash at the end of the season! Don't expect gourmet, but you will not starve!
