“A super fun ride through the trees as an alternative to the Apex trail.”
— Alan Doak
This trail is uphill only
to bikes on odd numbered days
. AKA you'll want to hit is on even numbered days
for one of the best descents in the area. It's worth noting that a lot of hikers and runners still use these trails on even numbered days. Keep an eye out and a bell is recommended.
Enchanted Forest is a super fun alternative to the upper section of the Apex trail. Aptly named, the trail follows tight and twisty singletrack through dense forest (dense by Colorado standards), lending it a different mood from other rides at Apex.
There are numerous, high speed root and rock maneuvers through the trees, which make this a blast for riders that like technical trail. The lush, dense forest that Enchanted forest runs through can look more like the Pacific Northwest than the Colorado frontrange.
