An extreme dayhike to Muir, the primary base camp for summit expeditions.

Very difficult trail with the immense amount of lava rocks that have to be navigated and steep grades along the way. Need to have good hiking shoes, wear layers of clothing as it can quickly transition from good to inclement weather. Amazing views from multiple points along the way.

Great Challenging hike! It is mostly snow all the way up. Did it just with my boots and that worked well. The view is stunning all the way up. However this hike is more for the challenge of it as the view is almost as nice from the high skyline trail.

Such a fun but challenging hike. Definitely wear microspikes. The views on a clear day are insanely beautiful.

Amazing day... hit the trail at 7:30am so that I could be back before it got too hot! Made it to Muir and back in 5 hrs w/a 40 lbs pack.

I would recommend crampons or micro spikes! I use crampons and the worked great. The parking lot was a mad house when I went to leave, so I would recommend getting there early!!!
