Apache Trail has only one trailhead, so you'll be backcountry backpacking it in and back out. You should count on this backcountry hike taking about 6 hours, but of course some people walk a bit slower and some a bit faster. This vicinity does get very dry sometimes, so do check for current fire restrictions before you go if you plan to bring a stove or make a camp fire. Keep in mind that this is a long great outdoors hiking trail, so make sure you bring plenty of supplies. Being 6.8 miles long it's a mid length hike. The total elevation difference for Apache Trail is 750 feet, and that is lower than average. You spend the whole hike in roughly the same elevation zone, so you get pretty much the same conditions along the whole wilderness trail.
