Hike or bike through forest, across prairies, and over hills on this varied tri-park hike.

Chubb Trail, marked by black blazes, links together Lone Elk County Park, Castlewood State Park, and West Tyson County Park. It is a loose gravel and rock trail. Starting at the Lone Elk trailhead, you will find the trail just past the World Bird Sanctuary.

Along the way you will see creeks, rock formations, and changing landscapes. Be careful near the lower river as rocks can be slippery there.
