An alternate way to climb Apex Park. A constant climb with exposed sun, this connects Grubstake Loop, Apex Trail, and Sluicebox. It's primarily loose rock over hard pack trail with several tight switchbacks and steep sections.

This trail thaws early after a snow.

Enchanted forest and magic mountain! Bikes downhill only on even days! This and White Ranch are the best trails to me on the Front Range!
