This is a great trail. We planned on continuing up the Glacier Trail past the Bristlecone Loop, but having flown in from the Midwest the day before, the altitude at the trailhead, about 10,000 ft, plus the elevation gain got to us a little bit. The Bristlecone Pine trail is excellent, with excellent viewpoints, including the glacier off in the distance, and also the view of the long lonely road leading into Baker. The trees are of course worth every second of hiking. Once you get to the loop the signs near the various trees provide great information on tree age, how they age trees, and beyond. The sky was incredibly blue when we were there, and even with the haze from western fires, we could see a good long distance. For the most part the trail isn't too difficult. There's a couple areas where the rock scree presents some difficulty, but they don't last long, so don't let them hold you back.

The trails leading up to the beautiful bristlecone grove is not overly strenuous. There are parts that are rocky and steep...enough so that some folks might call it challenging. However, the pay off is well worth it. These ancient trees are gorgeous natural wonders. Once you get to them, I recommend taking some time to contemplate all that has happened in their life span.

One of the reasons I wanted to go to Great Basin was to see these amazing trees that were 3,000-4,000 years old. Unfortunately we did not get to see the stump of Prometheus (5,000 years old) as the Great Basin VC was closed for Covid. Still the hike to see these trees was an incredible highlight. You can then combine it with another incredible and unique hike to a glacier by continuing. However, be sure to least get to the Bristlecones.

As you climb you get to a point where the trees begin to thin. This is where you will notice a strange tree with short needles extended directly from the branch. This is a Bristlecone. However, more of an identifier is a tree that has an exposed orangey truck with the bark receding, this is an ancient Bristlecone. There is a short trail in the grove that will take you around many of the oldest trees and tell you information about that tree, like age, and Bristlecones in general. You quickly will learn to identify the Bristlecones and you will notice there are young ones growing as well as mature ones without damage. Fortunately while we were hiking a ranger was in the grove and he told us the ones without damage are doing well but only around 1,000. It is only the ones with receding bark that are living beyond 2,000 years. In addition to the trees, there is wildlife at the top of the tree line. My wife and I enjoyed sharing the trail with a couple of chipmunks which added to the experience.

For me this was a highlight, up there with Sequoia and Redwoods. To see such superlative trees that have been there for so long is amazing. What is even more amazing is the character of each tree. They were truly made for pictures, so spend some time with trees that have been at Great Basin for a long time. My favorite picture is one of my wife hugging one in the 3,000 to 4,000 year old age, incredible to experience.

Our family of five have been to many national parks, and this hike is one of our very favorites. It has an exhilarating but not too strenuous uphill climb that ends up placing you among the oldest trees in the world. The bristlecone pines are almost spiritual in their shriveled majesty, while imparting a sense of weariness along with hopeful wisdom. Don’t miss out on this relatively short hike if you make it to Great Basin National Park, as it is truly special.

Before you start this trek, be sure to stop at the visitors center and get information about the trail. The 10-mile drive up Wheeler Peak to the Bristlecone trailhead is steep and curvy. But it is very scenic since the trees and vegetation change at different altitudes. There are a few viewpoints along the way. When you arrive at the campgound at the end of the drive, there are several trails to follow. They have a place to sign in for the trails. There is parking, a picnic area and pit toilets at the campground. We were looking for the Bristlecone pines. It is supposed to be a 3-mile round trip. It seemed much longer. The trail is well marked, and the area with the pines has information about the trees. It took us 1 hour and 40 minutes to reach the loop through the pines. We took it slow since the footing is uneven on much of the trail. Near the top, there are lots of rocks to walk through. You have to watch your footing on most of the trail. We also stopped often to admire the scenery. We had hiking boots and poles, but we saw other folks with every kind of footwear and dress. We were there in September, and it was quite cool. Be sure to take plenty of water. We saw others without anything to drink. Our descent took almost as long-1 hour and 30 minutes. We thought it was a fairly strenuous hike. Be sure to allow yourself plenty of time to take this hike and be prepared. It is worth the effort because the trees are beautiful.

I wasn't sure what to think of GBNP prior to our visit, but I was pleasantly surprised everywhere we went! We traveled over Labor Day weekend with a 16-year-old, a 13-year-old, and a 7-year-old. One of the first things we noticed was that it wasn't crowded at all, which was very refreshing for a national park.

After visiting Lehman Caves on Saturday morning, during the Saturday afternoon we decided to hike the 4 mile (round trip) hike to the ancient Bristlecone pines near Wheeler Peak. Again, this was 100% worth the trip. The hike was very manageable and completely worth it in the forest at the top. Some of the oldest pines are labeled, and there is a lot of information about various trees at the top. The trail is groomed very well.

One thing to note about GBNP is that it really is far from much civilization. We were lucky to have our travel trailer with us, which made it easy to transport food. You will want to plan for food and water because there are several small coffee shops and a few small restaurants, but Baker, Nevada is an extremely small town. We were able to purchase a few essential items while there, but we were grateful that we brought most of what we needed with us.

I would definitely recommend visiting GBNP. We already have plans to go back for another quick trip and summit Wheeler Peak.

We hiked the 3 mile loop trail to the Bristlecone Grove during a midday's comfortable 80-ish degrees. Not a strenuous hike if you go slow as there are many loose rocks along the winding path that slightly changes elevation. We crossed a couple streams, heard bird calls, felt the breeze whispering through the trees. We met couples from Spain and Switzerland, families with children, and fit matured couples. The Bristlecone Pines are beautiful in their old age. I picked up a good aging lesson from them.

We did this hike on 8/12/18. It was a little over 3 mi. and took us about 2.5 hours. The Bristlecones are amazing. Overall a moderate hike, primarily because of the elevation.
It took us about an hour to drive up to it, including stopping at several overlooks.
A fun hike.

One of the most amazing trees on the planet! What is cool about this grove of trees is that the NPS has information signs talking about them! It’s not easy to get to but the trip is worth it
