Southern Access Point

It is also possible to hike to Kern Peak from the southern end. The Blackrock Trailhead off of the Sherman Pass Road in Sequoia National Forest would be a logical place to start and this route has the added plus of passing near Jordan Hot Springs.

Blackrock Trailhead

Steve Eckert ( Bob Burd ( have posted trip reports approaching from Blackrock Trailhead as tarol suggests. I dayhiked this route and really enjoyed it. It’s definitely shorter than starting at Horseshoe Meadow.
