Grab your headlamp and come hike Monday afternoon at Apex Park!
Distance: We will be hiking about 4.7 miles with 1,000 feet of elev. gain. Meet at 4pm and start at 4:10. We'll take the Apex Trail to Sluice box, go to the top, then drop back down the front side.
***IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Sunset is 4:54, twilight ends at 5:22, so this hike will finish in the dark. The park officially closes at 5:54, so we must hike at a moderate to fast pace.
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.)
