South Fork Kern River Professional Review and Guide

"This fine segment of the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) along the South Fork Kern River leads nearly 7 miles to the broad valley of Rockhouse Basin, and features inspiring views into the Dome Land Wilderness. It also boasts productive fishing for brown and rainbow trout. The trip has no particular destination other than the river itself, which is accessible from many points along the trail."
