Trail of the Week: Apex Park, Golden, Colorado
A foothills experience not far from Denver.
Our Trail of the Week feature is made possible through a partnership with Trail Run Project.
Located just outside of Golden, Colorado—which is just outside of Denver, Apex Park is a 700-acre foothills experience with plenty of great trails for runners to explore.
This loop totals 5.4 miles but climbs more than 1,100 feet and allows for views of Denver and the mountains surrounding it.
The Front Range of Colorado is known for great running trails and this is one of the best. It’s a perfect choice for a fall run and should be in great condition for the next few weeks.
