Mountain Biking Apex Park

****   Add a review
#9 of 1,377 mountain bike trails in Colorado
#44 in the world

From the Heritage Square parking lot, take Apex trail west into Apex gulch. Take a right onto the first trail that branches off about a mile up. This is the Pick n' Sledgetrail. Follow this for 0.9 miles until it branches with the Grubstakeloop. Take a right onto Grubstake and follow it as it winds around the mountain and you start going south again. When you see the Sluiceboxtrail, take it down to Apex trail. Once back on Apex, take a right and go up the gulch. Once you get to the Enchanted forest trailhead, you have 2 options. This point is the bottom of a loop, so you can either keep going up Apex and descend the Enchanted Forest, or do it in reverse. Either way there are steep uphills and fun downhills. Once you finish the loop, get back on Apex and descend to the parking lot.
