Description

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 Front Range.
