    More often called the Cannell Plunge, the name says it all. One of the most popular rides in the Kernville Area. This is a 25 mile point to point shuttle ride. The good news is it drops you within riding distance of the Kern River Brewery!

    The elevation gain is a mere 1950 feet but the descent drops you to an elevation of 2862!

    Starting at Sherman Pass at an elevation of 9072, even on warmer days it could start out cool. Heading due south you immediately drop onto the trailhead out of the parking lot and float along on gradual rollers peaking at 9330 feet approximately 4 miles into the ride. Great views on this one with every type of trail condition to make it an epic adventure. Many stop at the cabin for lunch before heading out across the awesome Cannell meadow, hit a few drops and then dive into the plunge. Bring your technical skills although not too technical it has it's awesome moments. Good to make sure you have good brakes as this can be a brake burner! Coming around a section of the "Plunge" will reveal an awe inspiring view of the entire Kernville Valley to see the entire Isabella Lake.
