I was on the trail at 1115. I met Cody and Mathew, the Auzies just about 4 miles down trail. I had last seen them at Hikertown.

The trail starts across Kennedy Meadows and beside the South Fork of the Kern River for about 4 miles then leaves the river and proceeds over fairly nice rolling trail through a valley ending with a long climb out of the valley.
