Road and Trail Conditions 11/29/2019

Here is the status for the Sequoia National Forest surrounding the Lake Isabella Area

We can assume that all roads and trails are closed at this time due to significant snow storms over the past week with accumulations in Isabella and twenty inches plus at Alta Sierra and more at higher elevations. Please do not ride the trails when snowy and wet as you will create ruts which wreck the trails. Please see our Trail Tips for more information

For Further information please contact the Sequoia Forest Service Kern River Ranger District at (760) 376-3781 or see their Forest Service website


Troy Meadow Campground is CLOSED
Fish Creek Campground is CLOSED

Be prepared for winter conditions! Please check with a Forest Service office for current conditions - call the Kernville office at (760) 376-3781 and the Lake Isabella office at (760) 379-5646. Both offices are open Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Check the weather and ensure you have the proper winter gear, extra blankets, tire chains and other equipment before venturing into the mountains during winter-time.

Stewards of the Sequoia volunteers clear hundreds of downed trees each year to help the Sequoia Forest Service keep the Kern Plateau trails open. 

Why not put a day back into the trails you love.
