Join us for a three day road trip and car camp into the Kern River drainage of the south Sierras. Our agenda is not set in stone, as we have learned that tailoring our road trips to the interests of those attending is best. That said, here is the general plan : Depart early on Saturday and arrive at Lake Isabella and Kernville around lunchtime. From Kernville, we'll head up the Upper Kern River to explore the giant Redwood trees at the Trail of 100 Giants above Johnsondale. Camp on Saturday night at Redwood Meadows, Quaking Aspen or Lower Peppermint. On Sunday, we'll head east on Sherman Peak Highway and visit the abandoned Bald Mountain forest service fire lookout tower. After our hike and lunch, we'll continue east and camp at Troy Meadows, Fish Creek or Kennedy Meadows. There are various swimming holes and fishing streams that offer options along our route and we will get to see how Kennedy Meadows is recovering from the huge and devastating fire of 1995. On Monday morning, we'll begin the trip home by continuing east and descending Nine Mile Canyon to Highway 395 south and Walker Pass through Onyx and then south along the lower Kern River to I-5.
Although we'll encounter some stretches of dirt or gravel roads, four wheel drive vehicles are not needed for this trip. Experience has taught us that maximizing the vehicle space available is the way to go. Some members will have room for riders sharing in the fuel costs. If you wish to rideshare with another member, please indicate that in your RSVP and we will try to coordinate.
Check out photos of past road trips under Past Meetups. We hope you'll be able to join us for this one.
