Very easy. Park right by trail. Gorgeous views of snow capped Sierras and white mountains. Still too much snow to get through to bristlecone.

Surprise stop along the way from Big Pine, Ca. to Schulman Grove Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest, this short loop hike only 2 miles short of Schulman Grove offered some really great views of the Inyos, Whites and Sierras in the high desert environment. Nice way to break up the 23 mile long road to Schulman from Big Pine, the end of the trail has some nice benches for some time to reflect. Also the trailhead has some aluminum signage pointing out distant peaks. Not to miss as you get a great view for little effort.
