WHY - GET INVOLVED WITH APEXCHALLENGE 2019

Less Crowded than National Parks

A compelling Bucket List item

Other things to see in the Vicinity - lots to see and do in Taos, NM including the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory.

Always Leave the HP better than it was found

 

For some people:

 

APEX ACHIEVEMENTS ARE ARDUOUS ADVENTURES

For most people:

 

SUMMITS ARE SPECIAL SERENE & SERENDIPITOUS SPOTS TO SURVEY SURROUNDINGS

 

HOW - Normal gear, hiking poles will be helpful, plenty of water & extra snacks.

 

COMMENTS: We went up the short steep route & came down the long route - the two trail heads are a couple miles apart & I was able to hitch a ride.
