Shuttlefest 2017

Big Meadow, Cannell Trail

October 20-22, 2017
MRA’s annual Shuttlefest mountain bike event.

Biked it — Liked it! Cannell Trail

Mountain biking around the Kern River and Kernville offers some epic trails in the Sequoia National Forest!  All you Cannell Trail and Just Outstanding die-hards, this is a chance to ride multiple trails, each day, within this three-day event.  During MRA’s 3-day mtb event, we offer mountain bike enthusiasts our laid back style of riding with no pressure, loads of scenery, sweet trails and just a tiny bit of challenge.

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)!

Can’t get your mind off of summer getaways? Join us!  We are rafting the Kern until October 2017!

MRA offers rafting tours on all stretches of the majestic Kern River.  We chase the snow melt from
Mt. Whitney and are now running the Lower Kern.
This is a gorgeous stretch of the Kern River canyon offering up 1/2 day, 1-day and 2-day river tour options.

Click here to take a photo journey of our 2-day, overnight getaways on the Lower Kern.

Our two-day Lower Kern is the ultimate in Kern River trips.
This trip has the perfect progression for beginning paddlers and
eases you in to a little more challenging white water by your second day on the water.

  • Class II-III rapids on the first day to ease you into the paddling.
  • Class III-IV on the second day to push you, just a bit.
  • 20 river miles, 2 glorious days, minimum age is 10.
  • Amazing food, glorious river views, a jump rock, plus time to unplug and really getaway.

This trip is perfect for creating new experiences to share with family,
slowing your pace down and reconnecting with each other in nature.
We love helping parents, grandparents and “the kids” spend quality time together, in the outdoors.
