Raintree Day Hike
One of the oldest living things in the State of Nevada is a 3,000 year+ bristlecone pine tree called the “Raintree”. What’s the significance? Bristlecone Pines in the area have been proven to be as old as 5,000 years old, meaning that it was already 300 years old when the Pyramids in Egypt were built.
This six-mile round trip hike has roughly 2,000 feet of elevation gain and altitudes over 10,000 feet. To make things more exciting, we may encounter snow on the route.
Transportation and equipment is included in the price of trip.
Students and members: $50
