Farewell Gap

Farewell Gap Professional Review and Guide

"The Farewell Gap Trail was a popular route into the Kern River backcountry, at least until another trail was built over Franklin Pass. Nowadays, only the initial stretch of trail to the Franklin Lakes Trail junction is well traveled. However, hikers in good physical condition searching for excellent vistas will find the 5.5-mile climb to Farewell Gap quite rewarding, where the panorama of Mineral King and Little Kern River’s upper basin create picture-postcard scenes."
