The diversity of natural beauty at this park makes it a must-see destination for outdoor lovers—the hardest part is knowing where to start. Climb or take a scenic drive up Wheeler Peak, the park’s iconic 13,000-foot mountain, for spectacular views; wander through groves of 3,000-year-old bristlecone pines; take a ranger-led tour through the marble and limestone halls of Lehman Caves; and hike or backpack among pristine alpine lakes. After night falls, you’re still in luck: The dark skies and excellent astronomy programs are just as captivating as the incredible scenery you can see during the daylight hours.
