Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This route is one of the few that allow exploration of the wonderfully diverse country on both sides of the Kern River, making use of the only two bridges within the wilderness spanning the main fork of the Kern. It’s a real expedition, with lots of altitude gain and loss. Check with rangers to make sure streams are safe to cross if you plan to begin this trip before early July."
