[pct-l] getting to KMS

I think the simplest route would be LAX to Bakersfield, Bakersfield to Lake Isabella, hitch to the trailhead, start going North

Not the prettiest terrain, but it will get you to the trail with less stress.

I’m hoping to start the AT somewhere mid-trail a couple of weeks after it opens (maybe mid-June to mid-July)

My thru hike was supposed to start earlier this month, it didn't work out.
Assuming it is reasonable to do so I would like to start my section hikeof the PCT in mid July at Kennedy Meadows South. ?
Can someone tell me how I might arrange to get to KMS from LAX?The difficult part will be the last 20 miles, I think the rest can be done on a bus.
If it is too hard could someone recommend a starting point not to far to thenorth of KMS that would be easier to get to?
