Apex Trail/Enchanted Forest Trail
It’s steep. It’s close to the metro area. Bikers love it on weekends. Yet it has a tumbling creek and an enchanting and shady side trail your pet will love. Apex Trail is an early spring conditioning climb; hiking this trail early in the season will test your and your dog’s stamina for a climb in the high country when the snow finally melts. The main trail is gravelly and narrow so this is also a good place to toughen your dog’s paws or to determine if your dog likes this type of rugged hiking. Apex Trail is best attempted on a eekday, and an early start gets you up the trail before bikers arrive.
