A Community Built By Its Members For Its Members

High Sierra Topix (HST) is a not-for-profit Sierra Nevada adventure
community resource created 
by its members, for its members.

Our members are highly experienced in backpacking, hiking, peak bagging, bouldering,
mountaineering, photography and fishing in and around the John Muir Trail (JMT), Sierra High Route
(SHR), Pacific Crest Trail (PCT), and most importantly, off-trail areas of the Sierra Nevada. We are
adventure fanatics 
who can answer nearly any question on the topic. HST has several features to help
with trip planning, learn about or 
discuss locations, or, simply enjoy the Sierra Nevada vicariously
from the comfort of your computer or mobile device. Your Sierra Nevada Adventure awaits!

The High Sierra Map

An evolving custom dynamic Google map centered over the Sierra Nevada that contains street, terrain, satellite, and topo map displays and thousands of locators which identify features including cross country passes, waterfalls, USGS topo maps, fishing locations, and much more.

The Information Booth

Detailed information, descriptions, and photos regarding routes, trips, and cross country passes. While technically a portion of the forums, this section is tightly moderated to maintain consistent and informative content, and is a great trip planning resource.
