Return to Overseas Walks | Sierra High Route | A High Traverse of the Sierras

Sierra Grand Traverse cover

We are excited to share the cover of our latest book. It details a 200 mile (320 kilometre) high-level traverse of the Sierra Nevada range in California. It is primarily above treeline and the majority is off trail. This is an area of stunning scenery with hundreds of lakes and many impressive granite peaks. The generally warm summer weather of California makes this an unforgettable backpack. John Muir described the Sierra Nevada as the 'Range of Light' and it is indeed an apt description particularly st sunrise and sunset where glowing rock faces are reflected in the numerous lakes. The ideal time for walking this route is from mid-July through to mid-September. It is recommended for experienced walkers as some route finding and navigation is required.

The book is scheduled for release by The Mountaineers in the US in April.  We did not publish it ourselves as we want the book to be generally available in the USA. The Mountaineers are the premier US publishers of guide books and outdoor related books and have published more than 1,000 titles. Our guide is planned to be available for sale in Australia but details for Australian distribution are yet to be decided. We have provided a basic description of most of the route on this web page.

If you are interested in obtaining a copy of the new guide, then please email us. When we have firm details, we will send you price, release date and how to order copies which might not be direct from us (thats to be decided).
