As part of your registration, in order to participate in a Denver Field Ornithologists, Inc. (“DFO”) trip or other activities designated by the Board of Directors, each adult participant and the parent of a minor participant (those under 18 yrs. of age) are required to review and sign (either electronically or manually) a DFO Acknowledgment and Assumption of Risks & Release and Indemnity Agreement (sometimes “Agreement”) Completing this document involves your acceptance of binding contract terms. This online registration system allows you to review and electronically sign the Agreement if you do not have one on file. If you would prefer to manually sign a printable version of the Agreement, you may access it here, and present it to the leader before trip start. If you choose this option, please contact your leader to assure you are signed up for the trip.
Please note: Each person, including each family member choosing to sign the Agreement electronically must login and have a separate account so that the agreement is tied to the individual. If you are having difficulty with multiple logins, please contact us for assistance. *Minors: If participant is a minor, the minor’s parent or legal guardian must print out, review and sign a paper copy of the Agreement and present it to the leader before the trip start. Any minor attending must be accompanied by their parent or legal guardian.
Logged in users who have a signed Agreement on file will have the opportunity to print or save it at any time. Click on the link to the printable copy and use your browser functions to save or print.
Meet Your Trip Leader
Apex Trail-West Entrance (upper portion)
6:30 AM - 11:00 AM
Jill Boice firstname.lastname@example.org or 303-863-7580
Trail Difficulty: Moderate
Meet at the small park and ride to NE off exit 256 from I-70. From there we will carpool to the upper entrance to Apex. It is along Lookout Mountain Road, but there are only a few spaces along the road.
This trip is limited to the first 6 registrations.
Apex is a vertical park between Golden and Lookout Mountain Road. The trail runs along a small gulch that tends to have water in it all year. It passes through different micro-habitats. We will drop down into the gulch along the Enchanted Forest trail. (How can you resist?) This portion typically has foothills birds-nuthatches, flycatchers and Stellar's Jays. As we drop down we may find Lazuli Buntings, warblers and Green -Tailed Towhee. We will go downhill a couple of hours, rest a few minutes and then come back up on the Apex Trail. Often little surprises at Apex. Although we won't go far, these trails are steep. We will just take our time. Be prepared to help the leader ID birds. By mid-morning it can be quite hot. Bring plenty of water. Register online or contact the leader.
