DescriptionSport climbs in a narrow canyon near the falls. The hike is short, but slightly strenuous to an incredible secluded canyon waterfall with ~14 routes bolted along the orange rock beside the waterfall.
Routes are mostly in the 5.10 range, if you have added info please help me build this page, or take this chance to go exploring.
Getting ThereThe falls are less than 1 mile from the trialhead along an easy access path.
From Kernville drive north on the Kern River Highway ~11.6 miles and look for a dirt road turning sharply to the right and heading up into the mountains. If you see a wooden sign saying "Salmon Creek" then you've JUST missed it. The road is bumpy and may require some clearance. Follow this dirt road to a three-way junction. Take a sharp left to continue going uphill. You'll stay on this road for a short while, staying straight at the four-way intersection toward Salmon Creek (the sign reads RINCON TRAIL 33E23). The road ends at the California Aqueduct where it enters a tunnel in the side of the mountain. The hike starts just above where the aqueduct enters the mountain.
