This cross-country hiking trail, 195 miles (314 km) long, deep into the Sierra Nevada. Much of the Sierra High Route runs parallel to the John Muir Trail, staying east of that trail and keeping above the timberline to higher elevations. Part is off-trail, including class-3 rock faces in which footholds and handholds must be carefully chosen and tested.
