I had to be in Denver for business, so I left early and on the way down I stopped at Apex Park, west of Denver in order to climb Indian Mountain. I went up the Apex Trail, then up the Sluice Box Trail to the Pick-N-Sledge and Grubstake Trail, which I followed to near the summit of Indian Mountain.
Indian Mountain was just as short distance off the trail and was a quiet place to eat lunch. Temperatures were more like early summer than February and there was only a gentle breeze.
I returned to the trail and hiked the Grubstake Loop before hiking down the Grubstake Trail to the Pick-N-Sledge Trail and then the Argos Trail back to the trailhead. My route was about 5.6 miles round trip.
