Thru-hike Planning Page

I'm planning a continuous thru-hike of the Yosemite-Kings Canyon route in September-October 2024, and I could use your help. Read about the route.


I'm looking for companions to join me for an overnight, a section, or the entire route. View Options.


There are some fantastic day hike opportunities on this route. Meet John along the way and join him for a day hike as he backpacks the route. View Options


There are several very nice camping places that John will be staying at along the route. Meet John in the mountains and enjoy some of the best the Sierra has to offer. View Options

Logistics Support

During the expedition it would be super helpful to have a "base camp" manager to coordinate resupplies with folks who are meeting me to camp or hike.

Please contact me for all the details!
