|The Mount Goliath Natural Area is one of the more interesting areas on
Mount Evans. Should you bypass it on you trip to the top, do stop on your
way back down the mountain.
This area, a boundary between sub-alpine forest and tundra, has undergone
extensive development and restoration in the last few years. It contains
most of Mount Evans collection of bristlecone
pine trees. Some of these trees are over 1,600 years old. The area is
also known for it s songbirds and flowers.
Try to schedule your visit to this area to coincide with one of the Nature
Programs let by an Interpretive Ranger. I always find this 20 to 30 minutes
interpretive walk to be both fascinating and informative.
