Exploring Kern & Lake Isabella
Two moto-vloggers passionate about traveling and the open road.
The great thing about this route, is you can make it a day trip, a weekend trip, or even longer! Assuming that the camp sites or hotels in Kern are open, there are plenty of sites to see and places to relax and unwind for a weekend.
If you click on the image of the map, you will find a link to the routes that we took on our day ride, and you can check it out as well.
As you can see from the video, there are endless views along the way. Not only does the 178 have some amazing views along the Kern River, but Caliente Bodfish Rd. features views varying from open pastures to vibrant hillsides and canyons.
**Remember to always stay up to date with road conditions and routes, 2LaneLife is not responsible for peril.
We do our best to keep the routes scenic, the journey is equally as important!
We decided to kick it old school and pack a lunch for a nice bite by the river! There are plenty of places to stop and enjoy the peaceful setting along the river and we're glad we did.
Just outside of Isabella, sits the small town of Havilah, right off of the scenic main road. Here, you will find the Havilah school and post office buildings, as well as various historical plaques. (Click the image for a link to the history)
Bakersfield National Cemetery
In the beautiful rolling hills to the side of East Bear Mountain Blvd, lies the historic Bakersfield National Cemetery.
This land was originally owned by Mexico and was primarily used for cattle ranching, known as the Tejon Ranch. Burial in the cemetery is reserved for qualifying members of the armed forces and their family members.
It is an incredibly peaceful area, with lots of history and resources inside.
