Kern River Parkway Trail

Great Ride

October, 2016 by carellano_tl

I have been doing this trail since I moved to Bakersfield 24 years ago. Mostly flat, and in the summer it is very hot. The city keeps the trail clean. There are emergency call phones about every mile. There is water in the developed areas, but if you go to the west there is no water on the west end 8 mile stretch. If you have the desire, you can bike from about I-5 in the valley, all the way to Lake Ming, about 28 miles one-way.

Kern River Parkway Trail

West end Kern River Bikeway

January, 2016 by danbridge

Started at Chester in BF and rode west. Nice flat trail. Plenty of benches and water fountains along the way. It goes by Cal state BF, and the Brighthouse amphitheater. Once you get past Allen ave, you go into the great wide open called the "Bakersfield 2800" It's 2800 acres of watershed/flood control that I assume is controlled by the state. No water. No toilets. No food for about 10 miles. They have a signed gate that gives you fair warning about this area. You will be in the middle of nowhere. In June, the rattlesnakes come out of hibernation and sun themselves on the warm asphalt. Be on the lookout! You may also encounter foxes, coyotes, squirrels, rabbits, roadrunners and red tailed hawks. The trail finally ends up at Enos lane just north of I-5. Still, in the middle of nowhere.

Kern River Parkway Trail

Nice east end

January, 2016 by danbridge

I started at oak park and rode East toward the Sierras. Nice paved trail with signage and call boxes! Once you get past China Grade Loop, there are 3 parks for you to meander through. Alfred Harrell Highway was not fun to traverse coming back. Once the trail ends at lake Ming, you can hear the cars in the distance on highway 178, but there is no way to get there! You end up in a boy scout campground next to a fenced off golf course. Without a map, IDK how to get to 178 from there.

I rode this trail 5/1/15 to gain 10 miles of Latitude in my quest to cross America (Canada to Mexico) on Rail Trails only. However, it's not possible to connect rail trails themsleves east-west or north - south so I have dropped the "rail" out of the equation---especially because the Kern River Trail is not a Rail Trail. But it behaves like one with reasonable elevation change like rail trails. I did not see any homeless folks as stated in one of the reviews. The trail bed is smooth and fast. I found the eastern half of the trail as interesting/beautiful as the western half. A southwest wind wrecks havoc with average speed if you ride like I did (east-west). There wasn't a drop of water in the Kern River flood plain. It got to 95 degrees but dry air made it tolerable. Take plenty of water

Kern River Parkway Trail

long trail..has some mtb opportunities

November, 2014 by adamantane

I came over from Ridgecrest and rode about 14 miles of this a couple weeks ago, from the parking area off manor street west to about 2 miles from the I5. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the trail, it is asphalt. At one time it was concrete, you will see the remains of that scraped over to the side into the kern river drainage along the way. What makes the trail fun is that it is essentially flat as a board the entire way so really anyone can enjoy it on a bike from novices on up. The trail can be more 'hilly' towards the eastern end. I have gone out east as far as china grade loop on another occasion but then you have to start using some high speed roads with cars and bailed on that outing. The latest outing i rode on a mtn bike and quickly discovered that for the most part knobby bikes can ride just a few yards off to the side on some nice hard packed dirt. But the trail really shines for roadies i presume. There were some great places to stop and get real food and drink for example there was a shopping area like river walk park to take a break etc. It was very enjoyable and got a good workout as well...highly recommend it

Kern River Parkway Trail

Interesting trail

November, 2014 by jim.fong

Lots of different scenery for a Easterner such as myself to see. We took pieces of this trail and connected them to the Round the Mountain trail and Panorama Drive sections to coble together a convenient ride. Trail is well kept and the uphills are manageable. Lots of interesting historical relevance of this trail. Well maintained and some good straightaways.

Kern River Parkway Trail

Wonderful

June, 2014 by cdebskidz7

Very nice trail. You can park at Enos Lane and ride the complete trail, then turn around and go back. Round trip is about 45 miles. Excellent places to stop and rest on the way. Yokut, Beach and River Lake Park are all clean, nice restrooms. Finish Line Bike shop is right on the path, about half way point, if you need energy supplements or bike parts, great staff with years of knowledge. You can also leave the path at numerous locations to veer off and get something to eat or drink. This is one of my favorite rides in Bakersfield.

Goshen Avenue Trail

The westerly segment of the trail near the industrial area is not maintained. It is covered with twigs and dirt that has been washed over the trail by rain storms. The areas of the trail near residential areas are maintained probably as a golf cart path. One golfer came toward me in his electric golf cart and took the entire width of the trail. He would not yield to me.

Trail now extends from Henderson Ave. to the Heritage Center across Olive Ave. past the South County Justice Center. Now with two drinking fountains and a new bench. Always enjoy including it in my jogging routes. Well paved.
