Chandler Park offers some great mountain biking (our favorite in the area), this trail should be on your must ride list. Riding in the area continues to expand, the back side of Chandler now has some Freeride/Downhill type trail. It seems that some people love the trail and others don't care for it at all. Our take is that you should give it a try, there is a lot of diverse terrain, some technical parts that will get your heart pumping and some doubletrack that is fairly beginner friendly, beginners will likely be off their bikes too much to make it enjoyable, but those willing to push themselves should be able to have some fun.
I've been to the west end of Chandler Park a couple of times searching for this trailhead, and either it's not marked or nonexistent. I was surprised to find no visible trailhead, no tire tracks, or anything that would indicate a trail at all. What I DID find there was just an abandoned, overgrown asphalt road which leads down to a dirt clearing without any marked trails visible. The area looks to have been once used by motorcycles. Bummer.
Finally found the trailhead. Just off the asphalt road leading in, there are some dilapidated, old, wooden features that are close to collapsing. A bit further, there is a maze of 4wd roads that offer little to a cyclist other than confusion and mud. There is no signage, and no logical flow. Dissapointing.
