CANNELL TRAIL (33E32)
-begins at the horse corrals, 2 miles north of Kernville on Mtn 99. The trail starts out at a gradual climb, becoming steeper as you reach Pine Flat. The trail affords magnificent views of the Kern River Valley during the trip. As the trail climbs into higher elevations, it gets into a mixed pine and fir forest. At Pine Flat the trail parallels the south side of Forest Rd #24S12, and crosses Cannell Creek two different times before reaching Cannell Cabin, built between 1904 and 1909. The trail is considered moderate to strenuous in difficulty. It is very open and exposed and provides little shade.
