Apex Park - Jefferson County
Ownership: None Listed
Description: Just north of Red Rocks, this park is very similar in habitat (minus the awesome cliffs), and thus has similar bird species. For the most part the trail winds through thick foothills scrub with some riparian, with the associated Virginia's Warbler, Lazuli and Indigo Buntings, Spotted Towhee, Bullock's Oriole, Western Scrub-Jay and other expected foothills species. The upper end of the trail starts to enter Ponderosa forest with a little bit of aspen, where one could look for Pygmy Nuthatch, Red-naped Sapsucker, and other denizens of such woodland, though most are easier to get elsewhere. The Apex Trail has hosted some rare warblers in migration, so don't neglect it then.

Habitat: Foothill Shrub, Ponderosa Forest, Lowland Riparian
Directions: Access is from the northeast corner of the Heritage Square parking lot (US Highway 40 at County Road 93), just north of I-70 on US-40.
