Beautiful hike!! Once you turn off on Rancheria Road it takes about an hour and 15 minutes to get to the trailhead because it's windy. When you are about 1.25 miles from the trailhead you'll see a sign for the Oak Flat Lookout. Keep going and you'll see the trailhead sign for Badger Gap. You have to just pull off to the side of the little side road to park on the grass. There's a picnic table and bench at the trailhead. The grass was pretty tall and covering the trail in several spots but you can see the trail up ahead so you just have to wade through the grass. The wild flowers and views are seriously breathtaking!

We went about an hour and 45 minutes out and then tuned around. I want to do the 5 miles to the Kern River Trail next time, when I have all day. We didbt seventeen else on the trail at all.

I did have to remove some ticks after the hike and there are tons of fox tails along the trail- so just be aware of those things.

This was a great workout- nothing too crazy but I could feel it in my legs on the way back which was a little more uphill.

I can't recommend this trail enough for a lovely day hike!

Really enjoyed running here. If you choose to the top is really step but view is awesome. There are other trails that are easier for my kids. Great area.

Perfect place to get away, and yet not having to travel far.

We loved coming out here. There isn't a lot of shade so bring lots of water and sunscreen!
