Bump for you. Damn, I haven't been up there in over 20 years. We used to hunt that are all the time. My dad worked as a hunting guide at Kennedy many decades ago and did logging in the off season up there. He cut most, if not all the roads up there back in is day. I used to know the area very well from all this but have since forgotten. I do remember you can get to Monache from the Kernville side by taking Sherman Pass Rd. (rt turn after passing the Johnsondale bridge) and this will take you up to Kennedy Meadows and left from there to get to Monache. Not sure if this helps or not, been a long time since I've been there.
