From Forest Route 4107, the steep, rugged Starway Trail rapidly climbs, switchbacking up to the summit of Silver Star Mountain. At midpoint along the trail (at about 1.5 miles), the trail crosses talus slopes, beargrass, and brush, making the way extremely difficult.
The trail is difficult to follow beyond the halfway point. Watch for blazes on trees. (Please do not place any additional blazes on the trees.) The trail ends on the Bluff Mountain Trail #172. Plans are underway to improve this
trail. Check with the Mount St. Helens Ranger District for up-to-date information.
The trail features fantastic views of Mount St. Helens, Mt. Hood, Mt. Rainier and Three Corner Rock. In addition, portions of Vancouver and Camas are visible.
Directions: From Yacolt, Travel southeast on NE Railroad Avenue for 2.4 miles to NE Sunset Falls Road. Follow NE Sunset Falls Road to the forest boundary. At the boundary, pick up Forest Route 41. Take 41 south, past Forest Route 4109, to Forest Route 507. Follow 507 south to the trailhead.
Distance: 3.6 miles
