Over Memorial Day weekend, hiker Gautham started at the Jerkey Meadow Trailhead and went to the Kern River. Here is what he has to report.
Hiked to the kern river from the jerky trailhead over the memorial day weekend. The trail from the trailhead to willow springs is in good shape. From willow springs onward there are quite a few dead falls on the trail and it becomes hard to follow on the way back up from the river. Going down to the river the trail is easier to follow. You just have to go around fallen trees. However, since it is a canyon you can’t really get lost just follow the general direction and you will get back on trail.
Thanks Gautham for the report. If anyone else goes on a trip this season, please consider sharing with GTW so it can be posted for everyone else to benefit from.
