Directions:  From Denver, take I-70 W and exit onto Evergreen Parkway (74).  Take 74 into Evergreen and at the downtown traffic light turn right onto Hwy. 73.  Turn right onto Brook Forest Road for approximately 5 miles to Black Mountain Road.  Follow Black Mountain Road for another mile to the Cub Creek Trailhead.


The Cub Creek Trail is a pleasant hike through the forest on a rolling trail.  I have no idea where this trial leads to other than into the Mt. Evans Wilderness.  I have only explored this trail for a little more than 1 mi.  According to the USFS website, the trail is closed 4 ½ miles in due to property disputes so it no longer provides access to the Mt. Evans Wilderness.  That being said I am curious to know if there is a good destination spot within those 4 miles as the trail is nice and shaded and close to Denver.  The maps that I’ve seen do not show any features such as a viewpoint or lake, but I’ll have to go back and explore further.  I’ll report back when I find some more info, but if anyone out there knows of a good destination, please write comment on this hike and let us know.

  2. As a waterfront property owner, you would be able to construct your own dock and as an interior lot owner, you would have the opportunity to purchase a slip in our marina which is proposed to begin late ac repair near me

  3. It is really hard for students to complete their college homework due to lack of time, or lack of interest to do their assignments. When this happens, they tend to ask their friends and relatives to write their homework for them. This may sound great, but it can lead to cheating.
