Reviews

This is definitely the easier of the two bristlecone groves in the White Mountains to reach. The road is narrow and winding once you leave 168 out of Big Pine, your car will be short of air just like your lungs once you start walking the Methuselah Loop. The grove is at 10K feet so expect some altitude effects and take it easy, the trail is fairly easy but you'll want to enjoy your visit among these ancient trees.
