great time to hike.

Loved the variation of the hike between the beautiful forest and the views of town. Highly recommend. The weather was mild but be warned of the icy patches throughout the hike, especially in the woods. We wore microspikes and were glad to have them, even if they were annoying to take on and off between the icy and dry trail areas. Would recommend bringing some type of traction device and a layer as you transition between sunny/exposed and shaded/trees.

Lots of mountain bikers on a Saturday, so we just had to step off to the side with our dog, but it was a beautiful hike! Saw lots of deer.

Pretty easy trail with some rocky sections, none too steep. It follows the creek from the beginning, which is nice in the warmer months, and there are some shady sections as well.

I was on this trail last summer and encountered a man who had tripped on a rock while trail running and had dislocated his hip. We had to call 9-1-1 and it took them about an hour to reach us. Careful on the rocks!

Fun hike with different terrain. Bikers were super friendly. Lots of mud with some ice, but good conditions overall for late December.

My favourite "in the woods" local trail run. Most of it is runnable. Many variations in difficulty and distance. Watch out for bikes and the occasional bear.

This was not really a great hike for me. First the volume of mountain bikers can be pretty annoying. I've been on many trails that share with bikes and are fine. but there are a lot of narrow steep parts on this trail where it can be difficult to get out of the way. And the frequency can be such that you are stepping aside for bikes almost every other minute the entire hike. All of that could be forgivable of the views were there but overall I thought it was just an average trail for views too. The Forrest section is nice but is only a fraction of the overall hike. I greatly prefer Eldorado Canyon or the Table Top trails if looking for something within 30 mins of here. Flat Irons Vista is another great option.

Nice for trail running.

It was a challenging hike. Lots of ice, mud and rocky terrain. Also, lots of bikers and runners and it’s a narrow trail.

Ice traction recommended fall through spring. Lots of shade. Moderate hiking and biking traffic. Dog friendly.

Love the enchanted forest portion:)

it was a little icy a couple days ago.

Great trail. But super iced over today.

Great trail...but ends in residential area with no close place to eat and recuperate.

My only gripe is that this trail is primarily used for mountain biking. There were signs posted throughout that it be used by bikers on odd days only: Sun, Tues, Thurs- an important detail missing from the description. Being from out of town, we had no idea & decided to hike it on a Thurs. We had to move out of the way at least half a dozen times. So hikers be aware! Other than that, I loved it. It's terrain is hilly with a few steep areas mixed in and absolutely gorgeous. No views per say, but wildflowers and many species of trees throughout.

Beautiful trail! Great for mountain biking!

Great for trail run. It's challenging yet still fun. Super workout!! A bit rocky. The enchanted forest is lush and magical.

I do this hike in Apex Park often. If you follow Apex trail and stay left onto Enchanted Forrest you get to go in the shade and cool off for a bit before you head back down the mountain. Water source for dogs. Have seen lots of Elk. Lots of mountain bikes on Apex and connecting trails, but not too many on Enchanted.

I'd actually call this trail a moderately trafficked, easy trail. The trails are well marked with good parking.

Great hike. A bit tight in certain areas so if you bring your dog careful of the mountain bikers zipping through quickly. Great shade in the enchanted forest and nice views.
