7.5 miles of hiking • 2500' elevation gain •
You start a bit lower than Grouse Vista, but this old road is not as rocky as the GV trail. I scrambled up to the Vision Quest pits then cut over to the south summit of Silver Star. The goat was waiting for me at the top. She then moved a bit downhill and I observed her foraging as I ate my lunch. No-one else around for 45 minutes. When another pair of hikers finally showed up, they didn't notice the goat!
