    Barefooting the 212-mile John Muir Trail

    By posnerk


    This is my blog post for completing the John Muir Trail, a 212-mile hiking trail in California's Sierra Mountains which runs from Yosemite Valley in the north to the summit of Mt. Whitney (14,500 feet) in the south. I had intended to hike it 100% barefoot, but encountered some very rocky sections which slowed me down. The final tally was 72% barefoot, 28% in lightweight minimalist trail runners.

    I hope you enjoy it!
