Kern County and Kern River Valley

Be easy on me guys I'm a Noob. I couldn't find any rides or info on trails posted in my area.

Any info would be great. Please post photos and details.

Thanks

Thanks HanzoSteel. I know a ton of trails in the area because of mtb'ing but I would have thought I would have found something too. Maybe this would be a great place to post rides in the area...

junglemototours I saw that thread, but that looks more like Kings County and Fresno area. Just wanted something a little more local.

I have a KTM 990 Adv. and if you were talking about mtb's, I race a Cannondale Scalpel Black Inc. and own a Niner Jet9 RDO

I don't think you'll ride that adv bike up Rincon
The Sequoia thread covers most of Kern and Inyokern counties, might be geared more towards skinny trails though.....
Come up to Warped and meet all the big bike wide road guys!

My first ride!

Hey guys, I just got this bike on Tuesday and have never ridden anything that I didn't have to peddle. I know that the best way to get better is to challenge yourself so...









Can't wait to taker her out again!

Rides

GFeldy, that would be a fun bike up the canyon and then take the old canyon road into town. Could do a lot of fire road exploring up on the green mountain.

Also, I've been wanting to do this ride for a long time. Just haven't found anyone else who wants to ride it and I don't want to solo it. Stops by burro schmidt's tunnel, Randsburg and J-Burg for fuel and food, then out to the Husky Monument. There are def some better options than 395 to 58 coming back also.
