Hwy 395, said 25 miles. Whoa; twisty, turny, up and up. An hour and a half to get to the visiter center and the closest hiking trail. So worth it, though. Bristlecone Pines grow above 9500 feet elevation and live to be thousands of years old.
This is the third time in the last year and a half that we have had the chance to see Bristlecones and we will always take every opportunity to see these magnificent creations.
