John Muir Trail Hiker’s Survey


I did the JMT in 2021 so was even more interested than usual in Mac’s data from surveying 119 hikers.

Average age 39.

78.5% white.

$1679 = cost for the adventure. Average 19.6 days.

Average pre-hike backpack base weight = 22.34 pounds.

Favourite section = Evolution Basin.
