New Conditioning Hike: Stark Creek

  • Chevron Gas Station

    11101 CA-178., Bakersfield, CA‎

  • If you are interested in exploring a new area near Bakersfield to do a conditioning hike I invite you to join us for a five mile and perhaps a bit more hike up above Stark Creek. The hike is located about six miles up the Kern River canyon. We will meet at the Chevron Station at the corner of 178 and highway 184 and carpool from there because parking is limited.This hike is not for "new" beginner hikers but I do think most people who have been hiking with the various conditioning hiking groups can do this hike. The hike is not super steep but it is more challenging than the moderate conditioning hike because it is uphill the entire way. There is no downhill to catch your breath until we come back. Personally, I consider this the best short conditioning hike near Bakersfield. Our goal is to be back before dark. Hope you can join us! 

    The Shore of Hungry Packer Lake in the Eastern Sierras: We train and do conditioning hikes so we can go to places like this!
