Bristlecone Forest Map

The ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest is estimated to be 4,700 year old and the oldest living forest. Reaching the White Mountains and the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest from Bishop, California is about a 1 hour drive. If you're staying in Mammoth that would make the drive about 2 hours... but worth it. Travel south (14 mi / 23km) on hwy 395 to Big Pine, then east up hwy 168 to the White Mountain Road (13 mi / 21km). Here we turn left and continue the remaining 7 miles (11km) up to Schulman Grove at 10,100' (3048m). Several vista turnouts are located on the White Mt. Road, the most spectacular being Sierra View Overlook . Take lots of pictures and by all means, send us some.
