For the first time I tried the Chubb a couple nights ago starting at the West Tyson loop. Without realizing it I ended up taking what must have been a rogue trail that eventually turned straight up a fall line that crested a hill where the trees have been cleared for powerlines. I'd estimate this took place within 2 miles from the trailhead at West Tyson loop.
The puzzling part about my inadvertent detour is that I stayed on maintained trail the entire time, so I'm not sure where the Chubb trail split off and the rogue trail began. If it happened to me I'm sure I'm not the only one. Is anyone familiar enough with the trail to know where the rogue path splits off from this portion of Chubb? I'd like to avoid making the mistake when I head out again.
