Nice trail, picturesque, not too tough, can cross over to other trails easily. if you haven't been on this trail in the last few years, it's different due to a fire in the area several years ago. Much more open and sunny now.
We hit this trailhead when it met up with the fern lake trailhead. This makes for about a 6 mile loop. Our family of six made the trek with relative ease. There is a lot of rocky terrain with this one and some uphill walking. My 71-year-old mother made it - albeit with a lot of huffing and puffing and... 更多
Loved the lily pads and wildflowers. Too bad this area has been the victim to a forest fire at one point as the trees are not so pretty.
Cub Lake is a quiet and beautiful destination. The remains from the 2012 fire add a unique charm to the lake; lily pads are in abundance and in mid-July, the wildflowers are in bloom all around. We started at the Fern Lake trailhead, saw The Pool, then walked up the mile to Cub Lake. It's quite a climb, but worth... 更多
We walked the Cub Lake Trail in the evening, a perfect time to see cow elk grazing with their young. Very peaceful and beautiful. We camped nearby at Moraine Park Campground.

Walk along meadow for awhile with river & nice mountain views near beginning. We saw a lone elk there. Then increasing elevation gain & lots of large rocks, some shade, forest. Trail used by horses so... 更多
Maybe I'm jaded, living in Colorado. There are so many scenic lakes nestled in the forest with mountains in the back ground. Cub Lake used to fit this description - but now the majority of the trees near the lake are dead (killed by a forest fire started by an illegal campfire). So while the lily pads are still prevalent,... 更多
My wife, six year old daughter, and myself hiked the Cub Lake trail loop around Cub Lake and The Pool. This is a long hike, my daughter got a bit worn out near the end (she's a tough kid) but it was a great experience! The hike is moderately strenuous, but is a lot more strenuous when there's snow on... 更多
Cub Lake is absolutely beautiful any time of the year but especially so in the Spring. There are so many lily pads that one could envision walking across the lake using the pads as stepping stones.
