    Whiskey Flats Ride 4/11/2013 (Kernville CA)

    We a couple of Washington State boys rode the Whiskey Flats trail. So dry and lovely compared to mud, roots, and rain we are used to. A fantastic place but I think they should re-name the trail to Whiskey Flats between many Gulch crossings trail.

    Our basecamp, on the Kern river, just outside town


    From Kernville, we pedaled up the highway to Fairview




    The river was quite low for this time of year. Not a good sign for the rafting businesses.



    The trailhead is reached by crossing a suspension bridge



    Fisherman attempting to catch something













    went for a swim here - nearly died from thermal shock !




    big pine cones - we don't have these in WA

    It is easier to hike that trail than ride it. Did you at least have a McNally's burger before heading out. I was up there last weekend having me one before we hiked the Johnsondale bridge.

    yep we definitely had a burger and brews at McNally's. But it was on day 3 after hiking. We sat out on the back deck, over looking the river ... it was splendid.
