Trail shared by Benjamin Pontecorvo

A beautiful hike through the trees and an alternative to the Apex Trail.

This trail is uphill only to bikes on odd numbered days. Take note of the day to anticipate downhill bike traffic.

Description

Enchanted Forest is a great alternative to the upper section of the Apex Trail and enables the creation of a loop at the top of Apex Park. Aptly named, the trail follows tight and twisty singletrack through dense forest (by Colorado standards), lending it a different mood from other trails at Apex.

The lush, dense forest that Enchanted Forest runs through can look more like the Pacific Northwest than the Colorado Front Range.
