    Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

    "The Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest contains the oldest known trees on earth. Some bristlecones are more than 4,600 years old—1,500 years older than the oldest known sequoia. The Ancient Bristlecone Scenic Byway traverses the forest from south to north, terminating at its northern border. It offers views of these strange trees, many of which look more dead than alive.

    They are actually hardy survivors of harsh, high-altitude conditions. Schulman Grove, at the beginning of the forest, has an interpretive center and several self-guided nature trails. The byway is closed in winter. Elevation 3,900 feet. Stay limit fourteen days. Open April through November."
