What put Kernville on the map are adventure sports. Can’t find it? Head to the Sequoia National Forest where the surrounding Sierra Nevadas drop into the Kern River valley, and you’ll see: loads of mountain biking and paddleboarding await. Once you’re out there, it’s just you and the wilderness—and some of the best plunges in California!

You have to ride Cannell Plunge Trail

We’re told you can’t ride this 32-mile beast only once.

Let’s get to the nitty-gritty of it: This singletrack gem takes you across fire roads, steep sandy inclines and rounding burns. The curves, switchbacks, and rocky chutes will make your head spin as trees whoosh by in a blur. You start at Sherman Pass, a 9,200-foot elevation saddle, and glide into a staggering 5,000 foot drop over the final seven miles. It’s an advanced rider’s dream.

Just Outstanding lives up to the hype

Simply: Just Outstanding is just that. Also known as the Potato Patch Trail, the 4.5 mile route is surprisingly varied and one of the most fun workouts you’ll ever try. The trail weaves through the terrain as riders carve banked turns, fast. Many riders opt for one of the many loop permutations in order to put the name to the test again and again.
