General Trip Planning Information
Recreational opportunities include camping, hiking, backpacking, horseback riding, and hunting. The Bristlecone Wilderness provides opportunities for solitude in the canyons extending from Heusser Mountain (9,409 feet) or tucked back in The Cove. Spectacular views of Steptoe Valley and the Schell Creek Range are afforded those who hike to the top of Heusser Mountain. See area management for regulations.
