The Sierra High Route

The most spectacular long-distance mountain walk in North America is so little known that only a few hikers have made the trek in its entirety. During nearly 200 miles the backpacker will cross only one road, see only a few buildings, and walk on established trails less than half the time. And, as a bonus, almost all of the route traverses timberline, that marvelous landscape sandwiched between forest and talus.



200 miles of treeline hiking through the heart of the High Sierras. About 35-40 days. Some of the most pristine land in the entire US. I don't know that I want to do the entire thing all at once, but it does break down into a few 4-7 day sections.

What I'm looking for are partners. Who's game?
