I fell in love with the John Muir Trail because it's unheard of to hike 210 miles through-miles without crossing one single road. The scenery is beautiful every single mile.
What other long hikes of this epicness are out there?
I don't think there's anything out there equivalent in the lower 48. The PCT and Appalachian Trail are cool, but they cross roads, go near towns, and have a lot of barren and uninteresting landscape at times. I also want to find trails that take 2-3 weeks to complete. Those take wayyy longer to complete. Maybe the Himalayas have something like this?
