M. Walter Pesman Trail-Mount Goliath Natural Area Professional Review and Guide
"Mount Goliath Natural Area contains subalpine and alpine ecosystems along Mount Evans Road. The M. Walter Pesman Trail winds and climbs through an ancient bristle-cone pine forest (some trees are over 1,500 years old) in the Natural Area. It crosses alpine tundra with fantastic tiny wild?owers (peak bloom is in mid-July) to the upper trailhead. To return, hike a little higher on the Alpine Garden Loop 49 for spectacular 360-degree views, then rejoin the Pesman Trail. End your hike by exploring the Bristle-cone Loop Trail and Interpretive Gardens by the Dos Chappell Nature Center."
