* regarding length, see
The horizontal distance currently shown on the page is correct at 11 miles.

3) In the third paragraph of the Description section, the following words should be inserted as the 3rd sentence:
"The John Muir Trail comes south from Yosemite National Park, and meets the Mt Whitney Trail near Trail Crest just a short ways south from the summit of Mt Whitney."
