The sign at the Minnie Baker trailhead on Vt. route 53 in Leicester. Both Leicester Hollow & Chandler Ridge trails lead to Silver Lake.
Very little snow cover along the Chandler Ridge Trail (although some icy spots) on this early February trek with 14 hikers.
Blue sky and not too chilly.
Hikers along the western ridge (at right), looking southwest.
View along the ridge looking SSW.
Looking northwest from Chandler Ridge. Beyond this spot (going northward) there were nice views to the east looking toward Brandon Gap. Fern Lake in sight.
Snow-covered Lake Dunmore is just visible through the trees (about center of this photo).
Rocky gap for lunch/snack. Nice stone work here for the mountain bike trail. Continuing north from here gains more views of Lake Dunmore (west) and also Mt Horrid (east).
