Road To Patriarch Grove

19 of 24
Most of the road to the Patriarch Grove is within easy reach of stock SUVs during good weather. The views are epic, and stopping to drink in the scenery is almost mandatory. This is above 10,000 feet and subject to severe winter storms. Plan this trip around the season, as the entire Bristlecone Byway is closed during winter. Even during the summer, the weather can change quickly at this altitude, so prepare accordingly.
