Patriarch Grove Trail is a 0.4 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Bishop, California that features beautiful wild flowers and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and birding and is accessible year-round. Dogs are also able to use this trail.
A must see if you're in the area! The dirt road back to the trailhead is a little rough but a fun drive if you have the right car.
If you want an out-of-this-world experience, then the Patriarch Grove short hike will fulfill that dream. At nearly 11,000 feet, the ancient bristlecone pine trees reveal thousand of years of survival from drastic winds, and lacking of rich soil to grow or flourish.
