Subject: Work scheduled to begin on Apex Trailhead
I’m pleased to say that we are going to start work on the Apex Trailhead project on Monday, August 12. In review, this project will establish formal trailhead amenities and improve grading at Apex Park. This work will focus on the park’s lower trailhead, near Heritage Square and will include construction of a new permanent flush restroom, accessible parking, a park information kiosk, drinking water for people and pets, a concrete extension to the Kinney Run Trail and a formalized parking entrance. For more information see- http://jeffco.us/parks/parks-and-trails/apex-park/ (You will see a link for Final Recommendations listed at the top.)
The first step in the process will be to close the current trailhead and parking area, but visitors will still be able to park and access the trail from the upper parking area at Heritage square. Signs and directions will be provided on site to aid in this process. On Monday, our Natural Resource Management staff will begin to remove some nonnative Siberian elm trees and vegetation in the construction area. Other construction efforts related to erosion control, new trail construction, restrooms, and parking lot will follow.
Thanks again to all of you for your interest in this project and Apex Park. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
