Trail Information

Highlights

Chubb Park is named after Robert Bass Newett, better known as "Chubb" by his friends. He decided to settle in this area in 1867 when he came west from DeKalb, Illinois. Chubb built a hotel, established a ranch, and platted a town called Newett. Today there is nothing left of the old town of Newett, but Chubb Park offers impressive views of Buffalo Peaks and is connected to the numerous trails in the Fourmile Management Area. Chubb Park also provides access to trails leading to the Buffalo Peaks Wilderness area.

Drove this as a connector to make a loop and it was super muddy! It took quite a while to pressure wash the mud off when I got home.

Camped on the Lenhardy Cutoff and used Chubb Park to exit to US 24/285 and hustle over to Fairplay and Jefferson. Good connector road with classic Colorado views 360*
