The Jar Trail


The infamous Jar trail is a very steep, strenuous trail which is located at the mouth of Kern Canyon and is used by workout freaks and local mountaineers as a training hike. The hike is about six miles, maybe a bit more, with a possible elevation gain of around 3,000 feet in three miles depending if we go up to one of the several nearby peaks in the area.

Important note: This hike is limited to a total no more than six hikers including myself and is only recommended for those who are in great hiking shape. The views from the upper ridges of Kern Canyon and the Kern River below are some of the best in the area. The hike up and back should only last three to four hours at most and we should be back before noon. So,....if you are looking for a great workout on Monday morning, please join us for my favorite hike near Bakersfield.

    I've asked a friend to mountain bike that morning, but if that falls through, I'd love to come. 7:30 is early!! (just a bit of whining, sorry!)
