Nice drive and very scenic route. Easy drive... So it's great if that's what you're looking for. It was our first time out with our new jeep and it was great practice. Kids loved it. Next time we'll probably drive down to the Isabella / Kernville area and check out Kern River Brewing Company before heading back into town. Or, maybe we'll camp out and piggyback a Sherman pass run...

took my new overnight pack out here 8/11/15 and also this was my first hike in probably 5 years and I went all the way out to the rocks at reflection pond and back and I must say it was amazing. took the canyon trail up and the bike trail back. Going to give the mountain trail a go in the next couple days. It's perfectly warm and the breeze coming from the mountains down the valley made it that much better. I hit all the picnic areas and they are perfectly placed under some sort of cover, one even being near the washout for the rain water. It was Like I wasn't anywhere near the desert. I can not wait to go back for another long hike and to bring the wife and kids up via the bike trail. such a cool place.

I like these trails. There are so many ways you can go through and over these hills. Great for beginners and conditioning. I'm going to try to make they a weekly hike for conditioning. Wish me luck.

My family and I hiked this trail today. We got to the crossing about 10 am. We hike the San Emigdio Canyon Trail. It was warm on the way up to the Willows Picnic Area. There was a light breeze on the way back which made a huge difference. We took our dogs with us and they handled the trail like a champ. I can definitely see myself doing this trail about once a few times a month for conditioning.

I am a newer hiker- I've been hiking about a year- and I have hiked at Wind Wolves about four times. It has been a great experience each time. I have only made it out to the Willows Loop so far. I think that is about 2.5-3 miles from the Crossing picnic area (where you park).

This Sunday I arrived about 7:45am at the visitors center/admin building for the guided bird hike. It is actually more of a tour where you drive to locations in a van and then get out to watch the birds. The naturalist, Megan, was awesome! She told me all about the various birds, plant life, history of the area and future plans for the preserve. The tour was three hours and so worth it. Binoculars are provided and it is a free activity (donations are accepted and I gladly made one after the tour).

After the tour I drove over to The Crossing parking area and ate my picnic lunch in the shade before hiking out to the Willows. It took me about an hour to get to the Willows. I was going pretty slow and enjoying the views, plus it was almost noon in August so it was pretty HOT! I would suggest a hat and lots of water- I was thankful I had both!

This trail would be great for hikers of all levels. A cool breeze comes through every so often and it feels great! After taking the bird tour, I felt like I knew the area even better, so I definitely recommend checking out their website for upcoming events and taking advantage of them!
