- Trail UpdateVery dry conditions in August 2007, but still a nice ride. No water in the streams at all. Had to get off a few times on the way up, but nice variation.

- Trail UpdateMill Creek - Kern Canyon-Rode this trail 01-31-06, it's still in great condition, fun all around ride with various terrain as mentioned before. If your new to riding trails (like I am) those four creek crossings are just about ice cold so expect your feet to hate you by the first mile in.

- Trail UpdateMill Creek Trail-Mill Creek Trail offers moderate to steep, single track riding with Views of the Kern River. 4 creek crossings, switchbacks, rocks and bombable runs for about 2.5 miles. Gets pretty steep but trail continues 3 more miles. I never made it to trail end. Sierra Newts can be found at creek crossings. A fun ride with variety of terrain, but top part is not as usable as bottom. Occaisional hikers. Do not trash through top 2 creeks, as it muddies water for hikers to find newts.
