You will have to walk to the dog park and garden. Beware of the construction taking place while walking.
Experience Our Cantilever Bridge - Watch Video!
Our cantilever bridge is located between Call Farm & Jail Break loops.
The Town of Wilkesboro has opened four trails at Cub Creek Park through a partnership with Brushy Mountain Cyclist Club (BMCC) in 2017. The BMCC mountain bikers are responsible for the trails at W. Kerr Scott Dam & Reservoir and these trails are some of the best mountain biking in the southeast, according to their website and riders alike.
Citizens can walk or mountain bike these trails and they are open sunrise to sunset.
CALL FARM - 3.6 miles - Suble terrain with lots of bermed turns. A great beginner mountain bike riders, hikers & runners. This trail only is closed for Utility Construction Work until mid April 2022.
JAILBREAK - 0.7 miles - Mostly flat trails with a few tricky turns for riders.
PERKINS PLACE - 2.6 miles - Lots of twists and turns with a little more climbing.
TORNADO ALLEY - 1.4 miles - it will be a casual creekside trail with several boardwalks and bridges mixed with some steeper terrain.
Occasionally the trail closed signs have to be posted during wet weather and we ask that you not ride on the trails during closures to keep damage to a minimum. We cannot keep the integrity of the trails without your help. The trail status will be posted on the Cub Creek Park's Facebook.
We would like to give our thanks to the High Country Council of Government for GPS plotting of the trails and trail signs (right) that were done as part of an Eagle Scout's Project.
