The Apex Trail system leads you into an amazing group of trails that can keep you exploring for days. The system can bring you into fine fisheries such as Loch Lomond Lake with thousands of great camping areas.I have seen reviews stating the "Apex is typical country gravel road" but the writer of that doesn't have a clue as to what the trail system has to offer. There are at least six entrances into the trail system that lead you in with spectacular views, wildlife and photography opportunities with some real fun off road excursions. The difficulty of the trails are not more than a 3-4 on a 1-10 scale but there are some nice water crossings and other enjoyable spots as well. The overall beauty and fun along with the miles and miles of trails make me give it a 5 Star rating with a must do for everyone!!!

Was just a typical country gravel road. Great site seeing trip. If your looking for 'off road' try another trail.

An easy dirt road for just about any SUV when it is dry. From Central City, take Apex to Bald Mountain Rd. and go east to Alice and the St. Mary's Glacier. Don't forget to stop at the cemeterys along the way.

Great starter trail. I took my 2008 Ford Escape 2WD on this trail and had no problem, in fact it was a little too easy. Beautiful views and just a great day trip for families. Definitely suggest taking the left onto Elk Park Rd, there are two sections with steep inclines that are pretty good (highlight of trip). Overall nice and easy.
