Hiking the John Muir Trail – Tuolumne to Garnet Lake

For the past year I’ve been organizing a hike of the John Muir Trail with a group of social media enthusiasts. The trip finally started with three of the original 6 on July 13th.


After waiting for person number until midday, we took off up the trail towards Donahue Pass. We camped before the ascent the same day and then shot over the pass, averaging about 2.8 mph before descending down to Garnet Lake.


The views were incredible and the weather was perfect. We even managed to get in a bit of fishing.


Take a look at the video below to see the results of several pounds of camera gear!

  1. Look at those stars! I haven’t seen stars like that since I was on Hawaii Island last year. Beautiful.

  2. Enjoyed the video. I've hiked in the high country (Young Lakes) and also from the high country over Clouds Rest and up Half Dome before finishing in Yosemite Valley. Also been to the top of Yosemite Falls. Gotta put this one on the list. Heck maybe we could join up for a hike next year.
