Wind Wolves Preserve is part of the Wildlands Conservancy that is located in Bakersfield and is the largest non-profit at 93,000 acres. Also, the Tule elk were reintroduced to the preserve for reproduction and was off the extinction list. There are many fun facts about the preserve and for more information on the Wind Wolves Preserve, click the link below for its history and the making.
What I love about the trails was the canyon view. After the slight rain earlier in the week, the grass was green and the view to the canyon was spectacular. The mountain view was beautiful in the background. It was too surreal to take in the beautiful scene. The breeze was great against my skin even the sun was high up. The air was fresh and clean. Lastly, I have not seen 100 plus sheeps in person. The herd of sheep from afar looked like moving bushes. Usually to see this many sheeps would appear in a cartoon show or a night tv show, but to see this many sheeps was greatly appreciated. What I dislike about the trails was animal feces. The trails are animal friendly and many hikers brought their dogs for hikes, but it’s very uncomfortable to hike on a trail that has them on it. It made my trip cautious of the wet feces, hoping not to leave any under my shoes.
I would rate all three trails easy to moderate. There’s no strenuous trail to worry about starting from San Emigdio Canyon Trail. However, starting from Tule Elk Trail will be a challenge to hike and it’s about 1.25 miles until the trail get easy all the way.
