Mount Goliath Natural Area

 
 





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.
