The starting location is a short drive from Bakersfield. The rivers for whitewater rafting and kayaking here in California are often tougher than in other states, so don't forget that many of the sections here are not safe
    for beginners. The wonderful Kern County scenery and the cool fresh water are in themselves reasons enough to come here to paddle. The beauty of the Southern Sierra Nevada is a great plus for this river. There are campgrounds
quite near the river where you can camp. Getting your paddling muscles activated and just being out on the river for a while will have you coming back for more. Since you're on this site you are probably into whitewater rafting or kayaking, either way this is an area with plenty of places for that. There arenít any hotels right nearby but if you're willing to drive a short distance then no problem but do book a room before you come because  
it is a very popular destination.

Briefly about the general area:
Have a tremendous hiking adventure along the Cannell Meadow Trail; what would winter be without some skiing at Shirley Meadow. Yep, outdoors entertaining things truly is bountiful here in the Southern Sierra Nevada. A tour to Sierra South MT Sports wouldn't be complete without taking a look at Hot Springs.
