To get to the trail as shown, do not follow the Chubb for 1.5 miles and cross over the train tracks. Instead, after descending the hill (about 0.5 miles in) look for an unmarked trail on the right that leads to a tunnel that goes under the train tracks. Going through the tunnel requires a hiker to duck to make it through since the ceiling is rather low. A flashlight would definitely help as it is rather dark in there. After exiting the tunnel, there is a trail that leads to the Castlewood Loop.
