Climbs through mixed forest to an old road leading up to Chrome Ridge and Forest Road 2402. From Forest Road 2402 the trail goes along Forest Road 149 to some historic mine sites at the top of Chance Creek. From here the trail drops down Chance Creek to Silver Creek. This last portion of the trail is extremely difficult to follow.
Trail starts out as a moderate climb and then gets steeper and rockier as you approach Chrome Ridge.

Access Info

Take Merlin Galice Road to Briggs Valley Road to Sam Brown Horse Camp for the lower trailhead.
