This thread was designed to answer many of the questions that have been posted on this bulletin board by people who have not hiked on the Mount Whitney Trail before. It also provides a systematic orientation for people planning their first Mount Whitney trip and provides a good collection of web page links for future reference. (Note: For a collection of links on the North Fork/Mountaineer's Route
, go to Mountaineer's Route info links within...
). While the subtopics here are designed to be read in sequential order, they also can be accessed individually using the table of links below.
