Hikers come from all around the world come to the US every year to hike the John Muir Trail (JMT). JMT hikers face some additional challenges in the planning process because they will need to get permission from the US Government to visit the US.
On this page we talk a little bit about the various visas available to people visiting the US and hopefully you will find the information that’s relevant to you. Keep in mind that we aren’t representatives of the US Government or Pacific Crest Trail Association so can’t make any guarantees about the constantly changing regulations. We’re just a resource with the hope of making it easier for you to come to the US and have an awesome JMT experience.
