Trail shared by Kevan Dee with improvements by s platte

A fun, new trail with rock features, roots, and switchbacks that connects Cub Creek Trail to Staunton State Park.

Description

The upper trail splits off the Cub Creek Trail at just over 10,000' and descends through some rock gardens and forest. There are a few rock features that can be tricky when climbing this trail, and fun when coming down! Also, lots of rocks and roots to put a little air under your tires if you want! Keep an eye out when climbing, and make note for the descent. Everything within reason can be rolled over. Trail drops you off on doubletrack (FS Road #103) that takes you back to the Bugling Elk Trail.
