Chubb Trail

Entrance to Chubb Trail

This past weekend, I went to the Chubb Trail with my son, Kit, and my father. Instead of biking the trail, we hiked it. I can't wait to go cycling on the trail. Chubb Trail looks to be more challenging than Castlewood; the first part of the trail appeared to have some technical areas that would be more difficult on the bike. Once past the beginning part the trail seems straightforward. The trail is described here:

"The Chubb is the most challenging trail in the St. Louis area. It is a seven-mile dirt and gravel trail between West Tyson County Park and Lone Elk Park (14 miles round-trip). It has very challenging hills and some very fast stretches. Terrain is rocky and usually slippery. There are some truly nasty drop-offs. After those tough climbs you are often rewarded with great views."
