The White Mountains are the site of the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest, home to the oldest known living trees on Earth. Growing in harsh, high-altitude conditions, some Bristlecones are over 4,600 years old- more than 1,500 years older than the oldest giant sequoia. Schulman Grove features an interpretive site and several self-guided nature trails.

The scenic byway is paved from the town of Big Pine to Schulman Grove. Be sure to have water, food, and a full tank of gas, as no services are available along the road. The road is closed in winter.

Distance: 30 Miles

Directions: From Big Pine, Turn northeast onto State Hwy. 168
