I am looking for partners to hike the Muir Trail in 11 days starting on August 4th, southbound. Due to lack of permits I am planning to get a walk-in for either Happy Isles or Lyell Canyon (Tuolumne). If it is Lyell I will "day hike" from Happy Isles to there.
My plan is to resupply at Tuolumne, Red's Meadow and Muir Trail Ranch.
If necessary I can shift the dates a little if I know soon enough.
This will be my second hike of the JMT. I first completed it in 2004 with my wife in 12 days. Since I spent a lot of time waiting for her to catch up I'm pretty confident I can shave off at least one day, hiking an additional 2 miles per day.
