Customer Reviews

John Muir Trail Atlas has been used by thousands of hikers since the first edition was published in 2010. Here are a few notes we’ve received from happy customers:

“A friend and I completed a northbound John Muir Trail thru-hike this August and the JMT Atlas became our go-to resource. We also carried pages from the Wenk JMT Guide and Tom Harrison maps. Both of the other resources were helpful for supplementary information and broader map coverage, but the JMT Atlas was the one information source that proved itself indispensable. We both agreed that if we were to carry only one map or guide, it would be the John Muir Trail Atlas.”

- Gary Larsen (John Muir Trail Thru-Hiker)

“I used the John Muir Trail Atlas this summer on the John Muir Trail. The maps are excellent quality and scale and the format is well organized and easy to use. I kept the Atlas in my cargo pocket and referred to it often.”

- John Greenheck (John Muir Trail Thru-hiker)

“The John Muir Trail Atlas is the only map I carried on my 2010 JMT thru hike. Easy to use, profiles on each page, helpful mileage tables and graphics. VERY user friendly.”

- Sean Dupre (John Muir Trail Thru-Hiker)

“I loved using your John Muir Trail Atlas. It is compact (no folding and unfolding) and easy to use while on the move, and weighs less than one of those waterproof topo maps and covers the entire trail. Thanks for your excellent work and a high quality product!”

- Joe McDougall (John Muir Trail Section Hiker)

“I came off John Muir Trail a week ago. I used your Atlas constantly and found it very useful and easy to use. One thing I didn’t think we would need but ended up being quite grateful for were Town Maps. We decided to come out Kearsarge Pass to the Onion Valley TH (we were exhausted!) and it helped us know what was in Independence and Lone Pine. At that point, wanting a decent motel and something good to eat were our priorities and the maps helped us tremendously. Thanks for creating the JMT Atlas. Worth every penny!”

- Betsy “Dreamer” Cotton (John Muir Trail Thru-Hiker)

“I just got back from a thru of the John Muir Trail. After watching the sunset we came down from the summit of Whitney just 24 hours ago, 14 days after leaving Happy Isles. All safe and sound back in So. Cal now. Your Atlas was the talk of the trail, everyone wanted to check it out! Thanks so much for putting this together.”

- Jennifer Williams (John Muir Trail Thru-Hiker)
