This 5 mile trail gradually ascends to an old roadbed, passing just west of Silver Star Mountain.
From the Silver Star Trailhead the trail heads south. After passing through wildflower covered slopes and huckleberry thickets, the trail intersects Ed's Trail #180A. Chinook Trail #180B, Sturgeon Rock Trail #180C, and Bluff Mountain Trail #172 all are reached in less than 2 miles from the trailhead. Just beyond the Bluff Mountain Trail, Silver Star Summit Trail #180D leads 0.25 mile to the summit of Silver Star Mountain.
