Sierra High Route

The Sierra High Route (SHR) is about 200 mile across the High Sierra. This trail is a remote trek and a route finders dream. It barely joins any established trails and crosses 33 high passes. This trail is not to be confused with the High Sierra Trail (more to come on that) which runs from Cresent Meadow in the Sequoia National Forest to Whitney Portal.
