    Heather Rainey reviewed Cub Lake Trail Loop

    23 days ago

    Nice trail, mostly easy with a few short moderate sections. If you do the 6 mile loop be aware that the last mile is walking down the road. Saw a bull elk early on and lots of moose prints on the trail as well. The lake is pretty but there are a lot of burned/dead trees in the area, "the pool" was a nice place to stop for a snack. We arrived at the Cub TH around 6:15 am and were the first people there, although within 10 minutes others were showing up and it was full by the time we left. We went to Cub Lake first, then followed the trail down to The Pool and then on to the TH parking lot. About 6 miles total including the last mile on the road. The only reasons I gave it a 4 is bc of the dead trees and the mile of road walking, other than that a nice trail.

    Pretty trail, about 4 miles out and back. Lots of options to go further if you want to.

    Beautiful hike! My friends GPS said it was 8.4 miles though. Nicely maintained trail until you get to the last 1/2 mile or so, then it's rocks and scrambling so make sure you are prepared for that and if you choose to bring a dog please make sure you have them leashed (required anyway but especially on the rocks as they can easily bump in to someone and knock them over). It is steep in sections to give the person in front of you some space on the way down (if you fall and you are right on their heels, you'll take them out with you). We arrived at 5:00 am and got the last spot in the main lot, but you can park on the road and I am told there is an upper lot as well. Wear layers for sure and bring lots of water, The boardwalk can be slippery early in the morning. Hiking poles are helpful. Also there is 1 creek crossing, the water is low right now so no problem just hopping rocks to get over. It's a great hike overall, plan to be out there for several hours and have fun!

    Beautiful area but please remember that dogs and people are NOT allowed in the water ever and dogs must be leashed. Also it is not an area that allows shooting and currently there is a fire ban. There are multiple signs up about this but I guess people just don't notice them? CO Fish and Wildlife was up and enforcing the rules thankfully, I'm sure they issued several tickets based on what I saw today. Suggest getting there early as it gets crowded during the summer, or going in the off season. Fall is a pretty time to go up with less crowds. Nice place to go if you live nearby and want to squeeze in a short hike with pretty views without driving too far. I believe there are other trails branching off this one too but I have yet to explore them.

    Beautiful hike! Loved it. 12 miles RT. No snow, nice and dry. Beautiful weather for it today. It took our group of 4 about 7 hours, including two breaks and spending a good amount of time climbing on the rocks near the top. We went on 5-25-18,cool geocache box at the summit too so bring something small to leave if you wish!
