Its a rough hike if you are not normally active! But great views and a bit of aspen trees.

I love Enchanted Forest, a great downhill trail. Would probably rate it a black or blue black. There are some steep uphill parts, surprisingly. This is a two way trail which is its biggest flaw. On even days bikes are allowed to ride down and odd days allowed to ride up. There can be some pretty good hiker traffic making you need to watch out. Recommend early in the morning or late at night for less people.

Icy right now but usually an awesome shuttle run for mtb, can use a downhill bike if you have one, or any other bike if you dont, still fun. My first time was on a cheap hardtail.

I really wish not to rate this, as I dont want it to gain popularity. However, it is truly an amazing hike close to Denver.

Great trails. Only complaint is that they don’t build more with how much land there is within the park. This would help reduce crowds and conflict.

Lots and lots of bikes, but other than that it was a nice trail.

We started at the top and went down to the Apex parking lot. Then back up. The temperature was a huge factor on the way back up.Im sure starting down at Apex parking lot is a easier go.

I have only hike this when it was snowing. I really liked the trail because it went through trees not just in the open. There arent a lot of great views but it is still a very fun hike. The trail is packed dirt.

Beautiful place to hike. BEWARE OF THE CYCLISTS - most of them speed downhill.

We hiked this in the winter and it was still very easy. Great view of Glenwood Canyon on the way up.

Please stay off the mountain trails when the bears are active, especially in the mornings and evenings. If there is a sign up that bears are active and you take the trails anyway, then shame on you if the bears with cubs try to harass you! You are the cause of our bears being put down, when you dismiss warnings! Just stay away! Easy find another trail! And keep your dogs on leash if on these trails. Take them to a dog park if you want to let them off leash!

Did not enjoy this trail at all, very busy on the weekend and not much to see. Also too much of a mix of people and mountain bikes.

One star because there is no parking to access the trail here. If you would like to park illegally, you can, but then youre parking illegally, so dont. Go on an actual hike, park at the bottom (Heritage Square/Apex) and hike up like a proper person.

Might as well not be Public. Far too easy to miss and it looks like you have to get onto someones property to get there. No signage of any kind. Parking might be void as well.

Very vast trail system, trailhead can be a little hard to find and parking is limited, but once you’re in AMAZING

One of the best trails along the southern metro area Front Range. The trail is not incredibly difficult, is well protected from the elements, but is very busy.

Great escape from the daily grind of the city, yet only 20 minutes from downtown Denver. Good topo changes and majority of trail is canopied.

Enchanted Forest trail is rather splendid.

It is a neighborhood hiking trail. There is no public parking and no handicap access available on the trail. It is a steep downhill trail with many downed trees sometimes crossing the trail.
