This is a Awesome place. I've visited there for a Conference of an event hosted by JSC Result 2017 (http://www.jscresult2017.info/)

What a beast! Yet this hike is also the most rewarding and my all time favorite hike to date. It is best to hike this one over multiple days of possible, preferably over three days so the 11 mike decent after a 5 mike ascent doesn’t kill you. Overall I cannot wait to get back to this mountain sometime next year.

Coming down is harder than going up.

This hike is amazing. The hike down is even more amazing. Worth the drive and I would love to do it again. I brought my 7 year old daughter and she didn’t give up, but she is used to hikes like this and we took breaks.

The Big Pine Lakes trail is absolutely stunning and beautiful. Nice trails and great fishing. We Stayed in Big Pine at an Airbnb. "Big Pine Cottage Hideaway. The perfect place in Big Pine to access the lakes trails. This place is wonderful you have to see it. And it is dog friendly.

Hike is so worth the constant switchbacks (which did seem like forever but it ends I swear!)

The trails are clearly marked and very easy! As always make sure to bring water. The Bristlecone Pines are beautiful and I'd come back.

Beautiful easy hike! Highly recommend

Spectacular views. Perfect winter weather. Awesome group of hikers who were helpful when I exhibited signs of altitude sickness.
