Isabella Gamble 300

Pics from the first time we did a ride in this area (2007)

The region around Lake Isabella has great dual sport riding.  The area includes the Sequoia Forests with the spectacular giant trees, the Kern River Valley with great singletrack trails, the Breckenridge Mountains with scenic forest roads and trails, the Piute Mountains overlooking the Mojave Desert and of course famous Kennedy Meadows.  There are many fantastic rides here from scenic to challenging.


I have put together 5 rides to cover this area: 2 rides are scenic in nature and rated easier or more relaxed, these ride are good for people just wanting a relaxed forest adventure or for beginning riders.
