Shuttle Fest, Kernville’s Annual Mountain Biking Festival!

October 19-21, 2018

Mountain biking around Kernville offers some epic trails in the Sequoia National Forest! We are offering mountain bike enthusiasts Kernville’s laid back style of riding with no pressure, loads of scenery, sweet trails and just a tiny bit of challenge. With our annual Shuttlefest mountain biking event, we are also offering all you Cannell Trail and Just Outstanding die-hards a chance to ride multiple trails, each day, within this three-day event.

During this October, three day, mountain biking event, 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 crew 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)!
