Description

Apex Trail is the main trail connecting many of the Apex Park trails. You can start on the west (top) end off of Lookout Mountain Road or from the east (bottom) off of the Heritage Park parking lot, depending on the day.

It's a steep ascent as you work your way up this one. It's steep enough to get your heart rate up, and characteristics like water bars and large rocks keep it interesting. The way back is similar and can be hard on the knees. You'll be encompassed in a rugged valley for most of the duration of the trail.
