What the guidebook had to say:

"This adventure takes you to the land of the Hockett plateau, where wildflowers thrive in nature’s gardens, deer herds congregate in tall grass meadows, and lakes repose in glaciated bowls. The route then loops around to the rushing Little Kern River, whose headwater freshets plunge down flaming rock walls. The numerous side trips offered expand and extend your adventures." - Ruby Johnson Jenkins
