October Trip – Sequoia Needles; Needles Spring Area FS-21S05 or the end of the dirt road…
October 14, 2016 - October 16, 2016
Campsites (Needles Spring area) exist at the trailhead which is at the end of FS-21S05, a three mile dirt road. We’re going first come and first serve here. Drive out with us or meet us at the end of the Needles Road. Primitive camping so bring water and trench your waste.
Directions: Head W on 178 towards Wolford Heights/Kernville/Lake Isabella. Before reaching Lake Isabella, turn N on Sierra Way and head NW along the E side of the lake. This eventually merges into M-99 (Kern River Highway); follow this N through Fairview, then W through Johnsondale where it turns into M-50. After a few miles, turn N on CR-107 (Western Divide Highway). From this turn head 15 miles to NF-21S05. Turn E and follow this unpaved road 3 miles to the campsites/trailhead. A quick, scenic 3 mile hike along the ridge takes you into the formations.
