Named after the Father of the National Parks, The John Muir Trail holds a special place in every West Coast hiker’s heart.

But what lies beyond the iconic footpath?

The journey from Yosemite Valley to Mt. Whitney is packed with spectacular sights to see and things to do. But, if you only focus on following the trail, you’ll miss out on gorgeous unmapped trails, secret campsites, swims in alpine lakes, 12,000-foot peaks, and some of the most spectacular panoramas in the Sierra Nevada.

This FREE WEBINAR, led by backpacking pioneer Christopher Casado, will be your gateway to this untouched paradise.

Chris has spent years uncovering the hidden gems of this region. He’s stoked to share his years of exploration, revealing these handcrafted routes for the truly adventurous.

Forget following the masses – this is your chance to be a trailblazer. The next great American backpacking adventure awaits!
