Silver Lake Details

The Silver Lake Trail(Forest Road 27) provides access to the Falls of Lana picnic area, Silver Lake recreation area/campground, and loop trails. Park on the east side of Vermont Route 53, .2 miles south of Branbury State Park. From Route 53, the trail has a sustained climb as it follows Forest Road 27, passing under a large 'penstock' that brings water from Silver Lake to Route 53 power plant. After approximately .5 miles, you will reach the junction with the Rattlesnake Cliff Trail on a sharp curve in the road. Straight ahead, across Sucker Brook is the picnic area at the Falls of Lana. Bear right at this junction to stay on Forest Road 28 as it travels up a series of switchbacks to the north end of Silver Lake where you can access the Silver Lake Interpretive, as well as the Chandler Ridge and Leicester Hollow Trails.
