Bristlecone Pine Scenic Area

Established in 1964 by the USDA Forest Service, the Bristlecone Pine Scenic Area protects an unusual stand of wind-sculpted bristlecone pine trees. Growing at 11,700 feet, some trees are over a thousand years old. Strong winter winds have caused many trees here to take on a tilted appearance. Please contact the US Forest Service office (719-836-2031) for more information.
