Slim odds these days in getting a JMT wilderness permit reservation

… Due to very high demand, over 97% of all John Muir Trail through-hike permit applications are denied. (The reservation office receives hundreds of JMT requests each day.)

That's an amazing number. On the other hand, the JMT has become a densely packed throughway....we're always aware when we get close to it, as people appear out of nowhere....

Even more reason to avoid the congestion

Getting close to the JMT gives the same feeling of getting near the 405/10 during rush hour :/ We try to stay as far away from those areas.
But for those who really want to do the JMT, they can still always spend a few extra days trying to get fcfs
