Afternoon hike - Apex Park, Golden

  • Feb 4, 2013 · 1:30 PM

Got Mondays off? Afternoons off? Come hike at Apex Park in Golden!

**Note, this hike starts at 1:30pm***

Distance: We will be hiking about 4.7 miles with 1,000 feet of elev. gain. Meet At 1;30. 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.

IMPORTANT NOTE: I highly recommend traction devices, but they are not required.

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.)

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

Donation: $1 ($0 if unemployed)

    a little chilly because of the clouds and wind...once we were almost up the wind stopped and the clouds were moving off as we got down. Nice to see the whole hike in daylight!!!
