NileGuide Expert Says:
As one of THE hardest mountain bike trails on the front range, and being so close to the city, Apex is a local favorite. Try to go in the early morning when it's not too hot -- the heat (combined with mile-high-altitude) makes it even harder to keep momentum up the long, switchback incline. Apex's reward? A magnificent decent, but go slow around switchbacks and be courteous of those still making the climb!
- A favorite foothill destination for local mountain bikers, this park, 15 minutes from downtown, boasts a network of intermediate single-track trails with rigorous climbs and intense technical variation. The steep, narrow switchbacks of the Pick-n-Sledge Trail intersect with the Grubstake Loop, where you can reward yourself with a fast descent and yes, more climbing. Watch your speed and beware of loose rocks and waterbars. Hikers travel the trails for the views of Denver and the park is also a popular workout for trail runners.
