Bristlecone Trail

See some of the world's oldest living organisms along the moderate 6-mile trail. Some of the pines are believed to be more than 3,000 years old; their twisted features speak of millennia spent leaning into the whistling wind. INFO: Trailhead is at the end of State 156.

Desert View Overlook
Arguably the easiest hike on the mountain, the paved trail is less than 500 feet long and gains only 150 feet in elevation yet offers panoramic views of neighboring Las Vegas and Sheep Ranges. INFO: Trailhead is marked on State 158.
