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

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

The best days for hikers are odd numbered days when bicycle traffic is limited to one way traffic only. The trail follows a creek for a couple of miles, along which grow lots of wild hops and plums. Lots of shade and some views of Golden and Denver.

5 stars, a truly wonderful hike. Apex to start was challenging, a few icy spots required to essentially slide for a step, but majority was nice and hike able. The Enchanted Forest trail weaves in and out of open sky hillsides and thick shaded forest. The forest truly is enchanted, as we are sure the trees come alive at night when no one is around. Completed in exactly 3 hours by two hungover New Yorkers and a one year old pupper.
