Free John Muir Trail Maps & Databook

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

Free John Muir Trail Maps & Databook

Postby postholer » Wed Dec 01, 2010 3:11 pm

The JMT map and data book are here!

You can view the data book and the entire 41 image map set online or registered postholer hikers can download both together in the PDF file.

You can also view the google JMT map which has the same way points and trail trace as the above maps.

Features:
+ 41 full color maps created from 7.5 minute USGS quads
+ Beautiful 3D hill shading
+ Highly detailed elevation chart on each map
+ Large 8.5" x 11" maps for easy viewing
+ Accumulated trail mileage/elevation every half mile
+ Resupply locations within 90 miles of map center
+ WGS84 decimal degree tick marks for easy GPS use
+ Data book information printed at each locale on the maps
+ Separate data book appendix
+ Over 135 way points and resupply locations

The hiking community consists of folks with a wide range of talents and skills. When one of us can contribute our skills to the benefit of the hiking community without muddling things with financial renumeration, it's always a good thing. YMMV.

Thank you very much. I"m thinking about doing the JMT next summer and your links will be very helpful.

The postholer JMT maps have been updated with the new data generously provided by the hikers known as Mr. Fishmonger and Bill!

Further, I've created a northbound *and* southbound set with matching data book appendices. You can view the northbound set online and download either from that page.

Thanks again folks for your data, I know the whole community appreciates it!

What you have posted is so cool. Good work.

It is interesting that you have the route both north and south. Its so funny that there are diverse opinions on that matter. Personally, when I've done the JMT, all 7 times, I've done it south to north every time. I've done smaller versions of the trail from north to south. I like going north.
