The Methusela Trail is a 4.2 mile loop hike that journeys past ancient trees, an overlook into Death Valley National Park, a mountain mahogany woodland and the Methuselah Grove. The moderately strenuous loop traverses three ridges and two ravines on a well graded trail with an 800-ft elevation loss that must be regained on the final leg of the loop.
The world's oldest living tree, the Methuselah, is located along this trail although its identity is kept a secret to protect the tree from damage. The trail starts to the east of the Schulman Grove Visitor’s Center. A worthwhile stop before your start your hike.
