Kernville Mountain Bike Festival
Shuttle-Fest 2013

October 18-20, 2013

Mountain biking in and around Kernville offers some epic trails in the Sequoia National Forest! For the fall of 2013 we are temporarily stepping away from our traditional Kernville Fat Tire Festival gathering, just to mix things up a bit. Instead of our annual Festival-style trail riding, this year we are offering all you Cannell Trail and Just Outstanding diehards a chance to ride, multiple trails each day, within this three-day event.

For just the weekend of Shuttle-Fest 2013, held October 18-20, 2013, you will be able to ride Just Outstanding Trail twice in one day, if you would like. Or, ride Cannell Trail in the morning and then Just Outstanding in the afternoon.

Gather your usual riding posse and call us at (800) 861-6553 to reserve your shuttle and camp site. No worries, if you can't make it up to Kernville for this three-day Shuttle-Fest. Just let us know what dates you can make it, and we will get you up the mountain (shuttle times will be limited however)!
