There is a road from 395 West to Kern River Road over Sherman Pass. We call it Kennedy Meadows but it may be marked 9 Mile Canyon on the East end. It's pretty far south but I think it's the only East West crossing below Lee Vining. on 395 but is an excellent twisty ride. Farther south on 395 is Hwy 178 which is fun too. From Lake Isabella south, Caliente Bodfish is awesome!
