This is an easy day, you’ll walk around 7.5 miles on a gentle up slope to gain about 1500 ft. Following the Kern River the entire way. There is nothing remarkable about this area other than decent fishing and a pleasant altitude. You’re likely to get afternoon showers during monsoon season as all the moisture tends to accumulate in the deep valley. It can be a tad hot during the day, but it does cool off during the evenings and the Kern River provides a multitude of locations to cool down.
