North Fork Kern River Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Anything as rare as Wild and Scenic that can be accessed on foot is worth checking out. Kern River canyon is impressive at every bend. In the late season or following a low precipitation winter when the water level has dropped and the flow has mellowed, the exposed stretch of beach closest to the stairway is a pleasant launching pad for water-loving dogs, following a leisurely one-hour hike up the canyon and back, to get the flavor of the untamed river that owns the scenic Kern canyon."
