“Follow a flat trail paralleling the kern river, crossing the side creeks as you go.”— Kristof Mattei
This trail runs parallel the river the whole time and ends on the river bank.
The outing starts off on the soft sand, and gradually turning into a more rocky trail. The beginning of the run is where you'll see more people walking their dogs, but as you go further you won't see a lot of people, which can be especially nice for those looking for solitude.
Though you can continue along this trail for quite a ways, we decided that a 6 mile out (resulting in 12 out and back) was plenty for the day.
