Park at any one of the pullouts near the end of the paved road. Continue up the Cub Creek Road. Stay right at the first fork, heading onto road 100. At the "Deer Country" interpretive sign bear right onto marked jeep track and singletrack. After traversing the ridge, the route eventually joins road 025 and heads back down to Cub Creek Road.
