Just beyond the Bluff Mountain Trail, Silver Star Summit Trail #180D leads 0.25 mile to the summit of Silver Star Mountain.

Indian Pits Trail #180E and Pyramid Rock Trail #180F branch from the Silver Star Trail south of Silver Star Mountain before descending to the trailhead at Department of Natural Resources Road W-1200.
