18.5 miles of hiking • 4000' elevation gain •
Took a new route up to Silver Star, starting at the Tarbell Trailhead to the mountain's northwest. Just an awesome little lollipop, and honestly some of the DNR clearcuts provide very nice views both on the way in and the way out. Still lots of snow within a mile of the summit. As nice as it was up there, I think the highlight of the day was scampering about on Sturgeon Rock.
