The North Fork of the Kern River below the Johnsondale Bridge flows through a narrow river valley that has steep. The North Fork Kern River has many large boulders, cold water, and swift currents. The hazardous rapids and powerful currents make this river dangerous during normal flow, so swimming in the river and floating on water toys and inner tubes can have tragic results. Children should always be closely supervised near the river to keep them safe. This area can become hot in the summer (100º F.), but it cools down quickly at night.
