The Forks of the Kern is unlike any multi-day trip in the world. 22 miles of thundering class IV-V rapids mixed with cathedral high sequoias, sheer granite walls, and cascading creeks tumbling into the river. This trip is ideal for any adventurous group looking for the balance of sublimity in nature and adrenaline pumping whitewater. National Geographic recommended Kern River Outfitters Forks as the outfitter of choice for the Forks of the Kern and designated it “…one of the country’s premier whitewater runs.” If you are interested in a Forks of the Kern trip, we have dates available from late May to early June. If this trip sounds like your kind of adventure give us a call. We love talking about the Forks almost as much as we like running the river.
