Monday-Friday7:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m.
Apex Park provides a popular, accessible foothills experience minutes from downtown Golden. Hikers and trail runners exert themselves along exposed steep grades or find cool respite on shaded trails. Birders follow the intermittent stream graced with cottonwoods into the Enchanted Forest. Mountain bikers can test their mettle and technique as they grind their way to the top of Lookout Mountain and descend.
Biking on sections of Apex Trail and Argos Trail is one-way on odd calendar dates. Refer to map at upper right or on kiosk.
