Description

In the early summer, enjoy the amazing floral colors found along the trail to Cub Lake. Have the youngsters keep an eye out for hummingbirds that may be visiting the flowers. Watch for beaver along the way in the Cub Creek drainage. Beaver dams are easy to spot in this area and stream banks are ideal places to look for animal tracks.

Half-Day Hike: ~5-mile roundtrip hike on the Cub Lake Trail from the Cub Lake Trailhead.

Family Friendly: This is a manageable hike rich with wildlife and beautiful scenery.
