More information:

The Pennsylvania Mountain Natural Area is located near Alma in Park County, sitting just northwest of Fairplay. Encompassing 500 acres of land and with the 13,000-ft. Pennsylvania Mountain as the highest point, sights in the area include ancient bristlecone pines, stunning wildflowers, and alpine researchers in the field. In 2014, with the generous support of the community, Mountain Area Land Trust (MALT) purchased 92 critical acres as part of a multiphase project. This effort ensures the continuing ongoing scientific research conducted by more than a hundred scientists for over 37 years - one of the longest term alpine research sites in the country. The trail will be constructed on MALT's property. http://www.savetheland.org/pennsylvania-mtn
