Mount Goliath Guided Wildflower Hike

Discover the life cycles and lore of the alpine tundra and the intense beauty of a natural garden that lasts only 40 frost-free days.

This is a trail of contrasts--awesome Rocky Mountain vistas of the Continental Divide peaks, delicate floral treasures, wind-sculpted, ancient bristlecone pines, cold summit winds and gentle summer breezes. The path winds through the exquisite blooms of the alpine tundra, talus slopes and subalpine meadows providing a delightful and educational tour in one of Colorado's most beautiful natural areas.

Mount Goliath docents lead the slow-paced hike down the stunning M. Walter Pesman Trail, a moderately difficult 1.5 mile downhill trek from 12,153 ft. to 11,540 ft.
