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.
