Activity Notes

Moderate hike up Silver Star mountain with great alpine wildflowers and expansive mountain views. This high point is just north of Washougal, Washington.

We will start from Grouse Vista trailhead (a Washington Discovery Pass is needed here). This route avoids the terrible road on the northern approach to the mountain. The trail follows an old and rocky road for part of the way, then does a long traverse to reach the higher terrain. Trekking poles are recommended.

About 8 miles and 2200 feet gain. We will meet at the MMC  at 9AM and carpool (for those vaccinated). Hike should take around 5 hours.  It is about a 35 mile (and 1 hour) drive from the MMC .
