Mather Pass

John Muir Trail


This is the approach on Mather Pass from the north side. This is arguably the most difficult section of the John Muir Trail. When traveling in this direction you must climb up the Golden Staircase, cross the Palisade Lakes Basin then climb, climb, and climb some more. This was from my 2000 JMT trip.
