A mountain peak section of the Mount Evans area, this trail winds through subalpine and alpine areas where wildflowers and animals live amid grand mountain vistas and the sculptured, grizzled beauty of the bristlecone pines. Mount Goliath, a 14,000 peak, is accessible by the M. Walter Pesman Trail and is located 17 miles from Idaho Springs within the Arapaho National Forest. Highlights include delicate alpine floral treasures, such as alpine forget-me-nots, moss campion, fairy primrose, purple fringe, chiming bells and spring beauty.

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 hike in one of Colorado's most beautiful natural areas.
