John Muir Trail: Camping Above Guitar Lake

Guitar Lake Area - Search Nearby - Added by Kristen Bor

This campsite is located at mile 206 of the John Muir Trail.

Plan your last night to be spent near Guitar Lake at one of the unnamed lakes just a half mile above it along the trail. You'll find sun late into the afternoon and it serves as a great basecamp to hit Mt. Whitney for sunrise early on your final morning on the JMT.
