Great little easy road. Dont need 4 wheel drive during dry months. Has a couple really nice spots to go camping.

Beautiful meadows got me feeling like little bunny foo foo. There are some beautiful mossy boulders and trees feeling all sorts of extra fuzzy with all the moss. The sounds of flowing water wasn't so much a cacophony, rather a smooth, trickly chorus, like a sea of tiny marbles rolling down a shallow hill. #PoppiesinOctober

Nice easy trail that runs along the Kern River. Intended on taking this the full 14 miles but the trail was very overgrown and near impassable at the 6 mile mark. Though a beautiful, relaxing trek, there is a bit of road noise from the cars along the riverside road which was a bit distracting.

There is a trail across from the lake from the main road with all the construction with a gate and small parking. Follow the signs... It takes you uphill to a bench to have an overall view of the lake. Very narrow dirt trail, pretty easy. This lake was alright.

Nice and easy. Road to the tower was closed but otherwise all good. Started from 178 and made it all the way to the ski resort. Did it in a built Tacoma but any stock truck/suv/Jeep would be fine.

We had a great hike today. Beautiful river hike a few rocky ledges but no complaints... we all had a great time. Scenery was outstanding and the trail was challenging at times as expected. It was a nice warm up hike for the Sierras this summer., perfect legs are now ready for this summer adventures

Super fun trail, and pretty easy. We definitely took our time as you can see with the recording but we had a blast. Fortunately we were able to see the trail all the way through to the 155. I’m definitely gonna do this again and make it a regular trail.

Had a difficult time finding the start of the trail. It was well groomed easy trail with pretty views.

SNAKES! Fell off the trail at some point and ended up on another but it circled back to whiskey flat. So if it happens to you you’re ok. Definitely came across a rattlesnakes but only 1 thank god. It’s a beautiful trail. Lots of lowers at this time.

This trail is a little tough for backpacking depending how much you have on your back cause it’s super rocky. (That extra weight makes a difference) A tree is down and you have to crouch underneath to continue through trail. Some times the trail can get really narrow and if you go back far enough you come to a point that is real sandy and super narrow and have to kinda go fast and jump over to get to the other side of the trail. Over all a great hike with beautiful views!

Great trail. Not hard as a hiking trail. May be a little more difficult to backpack as you have to climb over some pretty rocky and uneven areas. Do not go when it’s hot. It’s mostly full sun exposure. If backpacking, there are plenty of fire rings around every mile: 1,2,3 and 4. We went yesterday. It was hot. The river was raging. Water was too rough and dirty for fishing. We did come across one baby rattlesnake. The teacups were really pretty. Overall, it’s a great day hike.

Dope hike

Beautiful hike. We didn’t start from mill creek but closer to the Breckinridge campground. This suggested trail does take you off the “trail” a couple times though which was not expected but it wasn’t too hard to get back on the road eventually. I suggest taking the road routes to the summit. There were a couple different options to get up there. Patches of snow here and there throughout the hike. I felt like it was pretty steep but still enjoyed the hike and made it to the top!

Can be technical in some areas, very rocky and the trail has eroded in some spots. Very beautiful hike with views all the way of river and water falling into the Kern.

Did a recording of the entire trail from kernville to fairview (14.7 miles). The first 5 miles was pretty well maintained. It started getting overgrown after that. It’s a pretty flat trail until mile 10 where it turns inland. Lots of ticks out this time of year - check yourselves and your pets (I had several on me).

Really great trail, the dogs loved it. Had to stop early due to everyone being covered in ticks
