This 67-mile drive brings you from Highway 395 to the North Fork of the Kern River, which feeds Lake Isabella. You will see expansive landscapes of desert, joshua trees, pines, burn areas, wildflower fields ranches, a tiny bit of civilization, and grand redwoods. For the very ambitious, this could be a long day trip from LA, but plan to drive slowly, the road is narrow.
Better safe than sorry!
