      The Leicester Hollow Trail begins at the north end of Silver Lake and winds south along the bottom of the lush, fern-blanked Leicester Hollow before slowly climbing the side of the ridge to join the Minnie Baker Trail.

      Heading south, the first half of the trail is a beginner-friendly romp through the woods –just be wary of the small wooden bridges hidden in the tall ferns.

      After crossing to the west side of the creek over a wooden bridge, the trail becomes much more technical as it alternately climbs the hillside and drops back to the creek through boulder fields. Care should be taken when wet as the moss-covered rocks can be very slick.

      The trail can be ridden either direction, but is easiest and fastest ridden north to south.

      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.
