Great hiking trails close to Denver. The park is very well maintained. They also provide brochures with the trail maps for all to take. I'm used to going on hikes where you are lucky if there is a map somewhere at the trailhead for you to take a quick picture before you start. There is also a bathroom by the... More

My kids LOVE going to apex for indoor swimming and gymnastics. The pool has activities from the youngest to the oldest of visitors! There are many tables and places to set up for the day. Bring a lunch and plan to spend as much time as you can!

Great hike! Took the Apex Park Trail to the Enchanted Forest. We had a group of 12 and 1 canine hiker. Appropriately challenging while not overly difficult. Several bikers along the trail, all very considerate in announcing their presence. Would definitely recommend this trail!

Although this is pegged as a multi-use trail (bikes, horses, hikers), most hikers and horse riders (the ones that do not mountain bike) probably will not appreciate the amount of downhill mountain bike traffic they will run into on their hike. Apex park has a lot of trails and a lot of them are very prime for bikers, thus the... More

Currently the park is only partially open due to flood damage last year. It is scheduled to be fully open August 2014. The big problem with this park is the limited number of trails and the amount of use it gets due to how easy it is for all of Denver metro to access. There is also the downhill mountain... More

Besides rude mountain bikers, the views cannot be beat. Close and worth the uphill hike. Hike to the meadows at the top. You can see DIA 31 miles away on almost any day.

This used to be one of my favorite rides; Enchanted Forest is a good descent, and if you want to do loops, you can make it a long ride. But this system gets too much use now. Some bikers don't know (or acknowledge) the right of way rules, so the hikers tend to get grumpy. I never ride here on... More
