“A nice Bee Tree Park trail linking Chubb Overlook to the lake.”— St. Louis County Parks
The trail traverses woods that are made up of both mature and immature trees. A small grove of persimmon can be found on the top of the hill. This native tree produces a sweet fruit in the fall, but just make sure you wait until after a hard freeze before sampling.
Crows Roost Trail descends a pretty steep hill before a junction with the Fishermens Trail along the lake. Going right on the Fishermens Trail takes you to the Paw Paw Trail which can be used as a return trail for the main trailhead at the Lower Shelter parking lot. There is a drinking fountain at the Chubb Overlook.
