I have about 4 weeks (a bit extra for travel to trailhead) to hike this summer. Would like to get back to the West. I am thinking about walking the JMT in July and then heading north to the Wonderland Trail (WT). I haven't done either of these. I can go in June, July or August. Would appreciate other suggestions. I am concerned that the JMT will be busier than I would like but maybe it lives up to its reputation and the trail and scenery will more than make up for the crowd. I realize that if I choose the JMT/Wonderland option, that I'd have to start in July. Also, maybe it's best to just stay on one trail for the full 4 weeks to avoid having to break up the trip with a dose of civilization. Any insights/suggestions much appreciated. Cheers, Mike

"Any insights/suggestions much appreciated. Cheers, Mike"There is a lot of fine hiking on the PCT from the Canadian border on down to, at least, Snoqualmie Pass that would be a good week to spend, say, 3 weeks or so.
Colorado Trail. If you are a big-miler, the CDT route through Colorado.Oregon on PCT.
