A short loop trail above the rim at Rainbow Point. This short loop stays entirely above the canyon rim as it traverses a subalpine fir forest. The trail is named after the bristlecone pine, which is found more frequently along this trail than along other trails in Bryce Canyon National Park. Bristlecone pine can be identified by the foxtail tufts of needles growing at the tips of its limbs.
