Qué harás

On this interpretive geology hike we will walk 2.8 miles through the volcanic rocks of Golden's North Table Mountain, accompanied by an experienced geologist who will teach you all about the rocks and the geologic history of the Rocky Mountains. These rocks formed from lava flows that erupted out of a volcano over 60 million years ago! You will learn to identify rocks and minerals and see details in the rocks that would never be obvious to the untrained eye. The hike ends at a site where geodes with zeolite crystals can be viewed within the rocks! With an experienced geologist as your teacher and guide, your hike will be an entirely different experience than if you went to the park alone. (Note: Park resources are protected. Geodes can be viewed, touched, and photographed, but collecting of geodes is not permitted.)
