Just heard about this documentary that was shot on the John Muir Trail. It’s #1 on my list of long trails to do and traverses some spectacular scenery in Yosemite, Kings Canyon, and Sequoia National Parks.
The DVD was released in April 2012 and follows a group of students from the Southeast as they walk the 220 mile Trail in the High Sierra of California.
But you can watch it here for free … thanks to PBS and UNC-TV:
Or you can listen to a podcast that I did with the Helmet and Doughgirl about the John Muir Trail. They thru-hiked the JMT in 2006 and talk about their preparations, planning, logistics, gear and favorite stops on the trip.
