      Directional Use - September 10, 2020 to September 10, 2021

      A one year management change will go into effect on September 10 2020 to improve safety and reduce visitor conflict. Enchanted Forest, Magic Mountain, Poco Calle, Rocker, Paydirt, and Smelter Trails are directional-use trails. Bicyclists are required to ride in one direction only (downhill/east) on even calendar dates. On even calendar dates only bicycles are allowed on the trails listed above. On odd calendar dates the trails listed above are only open to hikers and equestrians.

      All other trails in the park not listed above are multi-use, multi-directional regardless of the calendar date. For more information visit the Jeffco Apex Park page.
