Trail Maps of the Kernville area for the Fat Tire Festival

All of the images on this page are thumbnails of the full-sized pictures. Click on the thumbnail to see it full-size. For the maps, thick blue lines represent fireroads and narrow blue lines represent singletrack. For the profiles, the horizontal scale is doubled compared to the rest of the profiles on this site, but the vertical scale is the same, so the trails look twice as steep.
