There's more to Bakersfield than meets the eye!

The city of Bakersfield is located in the southern part of California. It has a population of about 642,000 people and is the third-largest city in the state. The city offers many opportunities for outdoor activities such as camping and hiking, but it also has many facilities for outdoor enthusiasts such as wildlife sanctuaries, nature parks, and scenic vistas. One particular place that deserves a special mention is Lake Ming, which is a reservoir formed by damming up the Kern River and can be found in central Bakersfield.

Lake Ming boasts all kinds of activities one could possibly imagine including boating, water skiing, fishing from boat docks or even fishing from remote islands. There are also plenty of nature trails around the lake which offer hiking opportunities to hikers who are interested in enjoying the beautiful scenery that surrounds them while walking through the forested mountains surrounding them.

You can access this trail from two locations in Kernville: Ivy Creek Campground or just south of the Bakersfield College campus (behind the college).
