Hiking Apex Park

This elk was standing in the middle of the trail yesterday you can see Denver in the background.

One of my new favorite hikes is just a 25 minute drive from Denver near Golden. It's called Apex Park -just above Heritage Park and not far from Red Rocks. Yesterday we saw a dozen or more mule deer along with just as many elk. The hike is pretty moderate but not a stroll. All together it works out to be a few miles that wind through the woods, along a stream and with a pretty steady grade for a lot of the hike. You can read more about it here.

Doug and I are talking about this right now. Thanks for the link/info - we can go hike there on our way down sometime soon.

it's a great hike. Sunday we did it again and took a different route through the "enchanted forest" - a really beautiful woodsy jaunt off of the main Apex trail.
