Terrain Difficulty: Easy (slight slope, 0.5 miles RT)

The Methuselah Tree in the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest is thought to be the oldest living organism on Earth. It can be found in the Schulman Grove on the Methuselah Trail, but it is not identified for its protection. Though the box is not on this trail, I highly recommend hiking it. The box can be found on the Nature Trail at the Pinyon Picnic Area.

Directions:
Drive south on Hwy 395 for 15 miles and turn left onto State Route 168 East. Go 13 miles then turn left onto White Mountain Rd. Before reaching the Schulman Grove, turn right into the Pinyon Picnic Area and park by the Nature Trail across from the restroom.

Clues:
Walk on the Nature Trail a short way to the loop jct and go right (counter clockwise). After passing a sign about Mormon tea and a bench on the left, find a bench on the right after a couple switchbacks. Go behind bench 15 steps to a rock overlapping another rock next to small bushes. LB is between the two rocks under SPOR.
