Wheeler Glacier, which is the only permanent body of ice between the Sierra Nevada and the Wasatch Mountains, and a bristlecone pine interpretive trail visiting the oldest living trees on earth. From the trailhead, this moderate trail crosses Lehman Creek to reach a signed trail junction where hikers should turn left on the signed Bristlecone-Glacier Trail. The route climbs steadily through dense limber pine–Engelmann spruce forest, then meets the Alpine Lakes Trail (Hike 7) at a signed junction. Turn left (east) and follow the Bristlecone-Glacier Trail as it first crosses over a low ridge, then climbs across a shady, north-facing slope. Where the trail turns right at a ridge, there is a good view of the upper Lehman Creek drainage and the Wheeler Peak Campground.
