Trail begins in the Upper Kern Canyon off Mtn. 99 at Ant Canyon. It parallels the Rincon Fault and Kern River drainage and ends at the Wilderness boundary approximately one half mile from the Fork of the Kern. The trail ascends and descends in elevation, in and out of drainages, passing through flats of Jeffery and grey pine, cedar and chaparral. Salmon, Brush and Durrwood Creeks are crossed offering good fishing and some nice undeveloped camping spots. This trail intersects with the trail to Packsaddle Cave and further north a tie-in section of trail connects this trail to the River Trail. It is considered to be moderate to strenuous in difficulty. Cross creek during low water ONLY. Best suited for advanced riders.

Directions: From Kernville, Travel north on Mtn. 99 for nine miles then turn right onto an unnamed road to begin at the southern most entrance. Sherman Pass intersects the trail about half way for a second trailend.
