Little Kern Lake Professional Review and Guide
"An out-and-back backpack beginning on the historic Jordan Trail, then following the Wild and Scenic Kern River to visit an unusual pair of lakes. Like so many features of the Golden Trout Wilderness, Kern Lake and Little Kern Lake are anomalies, quiet ponds tucked into the gorge of an otherwise swiftly flowing river. While most of the lakes in the Sierra Nevada were gouged out by glaciers between several million and perhaps 20,000 years ago, these two came into being when a nineteenth-century landslide dammed up a section of the Kern River."
