We hiked the circular pathway from the top to the Apex entry and will do the opposite the next time. Taking the trail through the Enchanted Forest afforded us the surprise viewing of a solitary elk cow, sitting alone deep in the forest, with a...More

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!

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.
