Supplies are limited, and it is possible they could be sold out of fuel when you get here. Plan accordingly!
Many hikers skip this resupply point because of it's cost.
A quick warning: Some hikers plan on resupplying out of Muir Ranch's Hiker boxes, without sending a package there (to avoid the $75 fee). But Muir Ranch's policy will only allow access to the hiker boxes to hikers that are having a resupply package held there! They may be more lax on this late in the season (when soouthbounders get there), but don't count on it.
Cut the cost of your hike, bring in more money at home, and cut your at-home costs so you can save up for the hike you've been dreaming of.Read More
