Visions of the Northwest in Colorado: single track in tight evergreen woods to be in one direction only.
Loop trail accessed by Apex Trail (within Apex Park). Enchanted Forest in predominantly ridden in one direction only: up Apex Trail and down Enchanted. Ride up Apex Trail (2.8 miles) and branch left at the top, before entering hilltop neighborhoods or joining with LookOut Mountain Road. At 1.5miles up Apex you will see Enchanted Forest trail join in from the left via wooden bridge crossing. THIS IS THE RETURN LEG, do not take a left here, ride up to the top and come back on the return leg. Enchanted Forest in TIGHT and FAST. Several technical sections consisting of roots, creek crossing, hairpins, sudden rolls, and the occasional hiker or Barney coming in the opposite direction.
How to get there:
From Denver: I-70 West, take Morrison exit, go right, drive one mile and take a left at Heritage Square amusement park. Take immediate right once inside Heritage, to the "lower" parking lot. Drive to the back of the parking lot. Trailhead is at the Apex Park signboard.
Trail not shown on any maps as of '98, known by word of mouth only. Ride out of Apex on Enchanted as the last ride of the day, to avoid people coming up (or "in").
