Going to drive up to the Kern River/Lake Isabella area this weekend. This will be our first time, does anyone have any 'must see!' sights we should put on the itinerary? I was told by a friend that you can visit the Giant Sequoias from here. Are there any back roads we could take to get into some non-touristy areas?
Any good boon-docking we could check out? We've got a six and three year old that would love to have daddy teach them how to catch a trout...?
Thanks for any input. We've got a reservation for Friday night at Sandy Flat campground but I'm always pushing for non-campgroundy boon-docking areas to explore.
We'll be meeting the cousins Friday night at the Sandy Flat campground but saturday and Sunday are open for exploration. This run looks beautiful.
Any other spots in the area to check out?
The trail over to Red Rock (Dove Springs trail) comes out at the upper end of the lake off 178 and is very cool if you want to check out the desert region. Might be a bit warm but who knows.
Check out Kelso Valley road in the Weldon area. You can read about it at the end of this article

It looks like the cousins will be camping with us through Saturday so Monache Meadows will have to wait until another trip.
I'd still like to boondock somewhere Saturday night, preferably near some hungry trout... any thoughts?
I'd call the ranger district. Sorry but I've never researched the area and have only been through there a couple times. Here are some spots around Sequoia but I really don't know much about the info posted.
