Mount Goliath Guided Wildflower Hike

Note: The Mount Evans highway is currently closed due to major road maintenance. Therefore, all July hike dates are tentative and are subject to cancellation if the road continues to be closed.


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.


Ages: 10 years old and up


Price: Free
