Description

Cub Creek Trail starts from Beaver Brook road in the back of Evergreen. At the top of the ridgeline you'll find the 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.

All clear- first time on this awesome trail. Rowdy enough to get your attention. Faster the better. Hope they don't change it or modify it.
