This day hike in Great Basin National Park features the Wheeler Glacier, which is the only permanent body of ice between the Sierra Nevada and the Wasatch Mountains, and a bristlecone pine interpretive trail through the oldest living trees on earth. The trail crosses Lehman Creek then reaches a signed trail junction. Turn left here onto the signed Bristlecone-Glacier Trail, which climbs steadily through dense limber pine –Engelmann spruce forest then meets the Alpine Lakes Trail at a signed junction. (Teresa Lake is a short distance up the Alpine Lakes Trail.) Turn left (east) and follow the Bristlecone-Glacier Trail as it first crosses over a low ridge, then climbs out across a shady north-facing slope. Where the trail turns right around the ridge, there is a good view of the upper Lehman Creek drainage and the Wheeler Peak Campground.
