I "rode" (more like explored) the Chubb Friday 3/29 from Chubb Shelter to Lone Elk and back to Chubb via Flint Quarry.
- The West Tyson side was fairly dry, but there are 3-4 large trees down as previously noted on other posts. These trees will need a chainsaw to remove, also a few smaller blockages.
- The bottoms were surprisingly hard/dry with a few exceptions. As you got towards Lone Elk there was about 100 yards submerged in 3-6 inches of water, though the tread below is remarkably firm. Is it unethical to ride a "wet" trail when it is under three inches of water and probably will be for a while???
- Along the bottoms there were several sections of new sand/debris brought in from the flood a couple of weeks ago.
- There are several spots where brush/limbs need to be cleared out.
- The fire road was still wet on top, though it's gravel...so, you get the idea.
All in all, Chubb is very adventurous at this point and needs some work to clear about a dozen blockages. Also, the trail needs another 1-2 weeks of dry weather to completely dry.
