Named for one of America’s best loved wilderness explorers, the JMT is a long distance hiking route that follows the crest of the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California. From its northern terminus in Yosemite Valley, it passes through several Wilderness Areas, Devils Postpile National Monument, and Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks. The JMT ends at the summit of Mt. Whitney, the highest point in the Lower 48 (14,505 ft).
