Kern River Valley is located near Lake Isabella, CA. The trail is primarily used for birding.
just to the western side of the dam after you cross the bridge you can park on the left(if heading north) the highway to kernville. fairly dry stream bed hike. can hike from lake isabella inland over boulders and rocks, great place for recreational panning and rockhounding. took my 9 year old sons and they handled the hike and climbing just fine.
