Wofford-Heights is a small community of approximately 2200 located in Kern County, right alongside Lake Isabella in the high desert region of the southern Sierra Nevada Mountains. The city is spread out along the foot of the steep hillsides, against a backdrop of pine forest. It's near the Sequoia National Forest, and so makes a good base camp for anyone exploring the area. Lake Isabella and the Kern River are known for their outdoor recreational activities, including swimming, boating and fishing, rafting and kayaking. Non-lake activities include hiking and biking, golf, horseback riding and camping. The nearby town of Kernville has a quaint western flair, and offers many antique shops and specialty shops, restaurants, a wildlife preserve and museum. The Kernville Whiskey Flat Days is an annual event that continues for four days when the whole town returns to the days of the wild, wild west. Other options for fun in the Wofford Heights area include visiting the Silver City ghost town, exploring the back roads and small towns of French Gulch, Pioneer Point, Paradise Cove and Hungry Gulch. Alta Sierra is another small community located on the hills behind Wofford Heights that includes a shady pine forest and secluded campgrounds.

Wofford Heights Weather & Climate

The high desert/foothills region located northeast of Bakersfield is part of the Sequoia National Forest. Elevations range from 1,000 feet around the foothills to peaks over 12,000 feet in the rugged backcountry. Therefore, temperature varies by elevation and conditions can change quickly and drastically depending on where you are. Generally, the foothills are characterized by hot, dry summers and wet, cool winters. Most precipitation occurs November through March in the form of rain in the lower elevations and snow in the higher elevations. Some higher mountains roads close for a while due to snow, others may be icy. During the winter, low-hanging clouds often drift in from the west, hanging around for several days at a time. Rain in the summer is rare, and wildfire is almost always a threat.
