Wednesday afternoon hike - Apex Park

  • Aug 21, 2013 · 5:30 PM

Let's hike my favorite park - Apex Park in Golden. Meet at 5:30, we'll start at 5:40. If you're late, catch up.

Distance: We will be hiking about 4.5 miles with 1,000 feet of elev. gain. We'll take the Apex Trail to Sluice Box, go to the top, then drop back down the front side. Read about the hike here.

Pace: For everyone's safety, no slow hikers. This will be a moderate to fast paced hike. we'll be hiking about 2.5 miles per hour even with the elevation gain.

Dogs: No dogs, the trail is too thin and busy.

Donation: $1 ($0 if unemployed)

Directions: From 6th/I-70/C470, take I-70 West to exit 259, Morrison. Turn right. Drive 1.1 miles to Heritage Road (not Heritage Square), turn left. As you come around that first turn, take a quick left onto an unsigned paved road to the parking lot. (If you see Kimball or Berthoud streets, you've gone too far. Turn around, there is a sign for Apex park in the other direction.) (We'll be parking in lower parking, not the upper lot of Heritage Square parking lot.) UNLESS the lower lot is closed for construction, THEN go to the upper lot.
