Be very careful of any hike you take in this park. I would say that your best bet it to stick to the main roads and skip hikes because there is very little signage and hardly anyone else here. There are 2 Pole Canyons, the trail and then the mining road. The mining road is the only effective way to the Bristle Cone trees near Washington and Jefferson peaks. It can only be done with a beefy 4x4 truck with good tires. You MUST have backcountry experience. Mistakes can be fatal here. I spent 3 days in this park and saw 1 other person.
