Awesome trail

I love just to get out of Bakersfield for this little hike, the festivals are fun and the wild flowers are so pretty! Great for photography portraits.

"This is why we can't have nice things." Sadly, the trail was closed by the land owner... And I can't blame him. People left quite a bit of trash, did graffiti, and would not stay on the trail... This is not the way to enjoy the great outdoors. Pack it in, pack it out and only leave footprints. Simple right...?

Pretty view, great exercise, a little dangerous at times. Not sure if I would take children up here. Sadly it's closed down now. I'm glad I got to experience it before that happened.

I wouldn't call this a hike per say, I also wouldn't come out here during the summer as it is all yellow, brown, and dead. Unless you want to see the sun set with smog in the distance. During the spring or winter, early in the morning it is worth the drive. Otherwise you can go into the Kern Canyon for 45 min and find an actual trail to hike with scenery. That's just my opinion however.

This is a "trail" you would definitely want to do during the spring or winter IMO. Everything is green, the skies are crisp blue early in the morning and all the mountains in the distance are capped with snow. Would not recommend during summer, unless you just enjoy getting burnt and dusty as there are no trees for shade (that I have ever found), but it is nice exercise away from the city I will admit.

I did you the 10k trail run...awesome!!!
