The Deer Rub Trail is a multi-use trail at Chewacla that drops off the top of the mountain from behind the upper pavilion. While this is a popular hiking trail, it offers mountain bikers a uniquely challenging steep downhill culminated in a mandatory 4' drop off of a buried log. Keep your speed in check and look out for other trail users as this is a popular hiking trail. The lower part of deer rub is also used as a return for the Chewacla DH trail.
This trail is too steep to ride up from the bottom so it is best used as a DH only trail for bikes. Hikers use this trail in both directions.
