Hiking The Sierra Nevada

Very scenic trail that starts on the South side of Johnsondale bridge and goes up North along the right side of the Kern river. About 1.5 miles up, on the other side of the river is where Dry Meadow Creek goes into the Kern. Unfortunately it's on the other side of the river, but if you're able to cross, the famous "7 teacups" (pools of water in solid granit rock) are right there. For the two miles I hiked one way, there were many changes in the landscape that makes you want to go a little bit further everytime you round a corner. Park either at the bridge, which is usually packed, or just down the road where it forks with Sherman Pass Rd.
