Chandler Ridge is a 6 mile rare ridgeline bike trail, with stunning views of Silver Lake at the beginning and end of the ride. Expect nice flowy trail and incredible stone work on moderate pitches, 6-7% average, with a total elevation gain of 2100 vertical feet. The trail begins at the northern end of Silver Lake just past the damn. It follows a ridge offering gentle grades with switchbacks and has views to the east and west of Silver Lake and Lake Dunmore, and then eventually meets the Minnie Baker Trail. For a complete loop take the Leicester Hollow Trail for an additional 4.8 miles to bring you back the Silver lake campground area.
