Rowdy, rocky, and rooty. Tough climb, awesome descent. Connects to Staunton via the new North Elk Creek Trail.

Features -none-

The Cub Creek Trail is closed to bikes beyond the junction with North Elk Creek.

Description

Cub Creek Trail starts from Beaver Brook road in the back of Evergreen, climbing 4.5 miles to the Mount Evans Wilderness Boundary. At the top of the ridgeline you'll find the new North Elk Creek connector to Staunton State Park. Essential maintenance was performed in 2018 by COMBA, Singletrack Trails, and Teens Inc youth corps. Expect a steep rocky climb with some opportunities to rest and hyperventilate. The descent is a rollicking good time.

Cub Creek is worth a look. Recent maintenance has been performed and it's running great. A world away from the usual Front Range trails. Definitely check out the new North Elk Creek connector at the top of the ridge which descends into Staunton State Park. Sep 10, 2018
