Freeway Ridge, Black Gulch
This is a nice, scenic climb to the top of the peak at 6,500 feet. As you drop down, you'll get some great views of Isabella Lake. If you want to explore all of the roads in the area, get an MVUM. Green-sticker vehicles will find camping and side roads to play on. If you're looking for a challenge, take the trail from the south side.
Keyesville is named after Richard Keyes, who discovered gold here in 1853 and set off a major gold rush along the Kern River. The town had about 60 permanent residents. Structures included 8 houses, a saloon, a small hotel and an earthen fort for protection against Indian attacks.
