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 Trail #764 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.
