Other than a few maps and a single trail journal I can’t seem to find ANY information on this trail. I know the project was abandoned and the trail is incomplete and that the website for the project is no longer up.
I am looking to squeeze this one in February 2016 for training for my pct thru attempt. I attempted the lowest to highest (l2h) in October 2015 and made it to lone pine in 6 days but was snowed out of whitney and didn’t have time or money to wait in lone pine for it to melt.
Does anyone have any information on this trail. I understand that the maps that are up are outdated and you have to come up with your own detours on the fly due to fences and housing complexes and things like that. Should I just use what’s up and make my own route? I’d like to stick as close to the original but from the research I have that doesn’t seem to be an option half the time.
Any information you guys have would be greatly appreciated.Dec 30, 2015 at 10:44 am #3373226

I’m also interested in this trail and frustrated by the lack of information.
I found the 2010 version of the project web site on archive.org aka The Wayback Machine:

Thanks Rex. That’s a seriously helpful link!
I am thinking of carrying a GPS device to drop way points for later hikers to follow.
Currently I only have a spot device and that wouldn’t work for downloadable way points.
I guess I am just going to have to throw together what information I can find and figure out the rest on trail and Google maps.Dec 30, 2015 at 4:26 pm #3373303

I think Justin Lichter is/was planning on doing this this year or early next. Perhaps ALDHA gazette is where I read something about it. Was not in this latest issue.Jan 18, 2016 at 6:37 pm #3376534
