I didn’t think I’d get a chance to go here this year due to a wildfire, but parts of the area reopened just in time to see this subalpine splendor in brilliant fall color.

This is a great year for wildflowers on Silver Star Mountain! We took the Grouse Vista trailhead from the south side of Silver Star. The trail is steep, with large gravel and rocks for most of the way.

While waiting for the alpine areas in the mountains to be snow-free, we decided to spend more time at Siouxon, staying for three nights so we would have time to do more exploration.

Grouse Vista is a southern trailhead for Silver Star Mountain. Better roads, same great views at the top.

I can’t get enough of Siouxon, so I went again with two friends. This time, our campsite was near the Wildcat Trail.

One of my favorite places is a hike through one of the greenest forests around, with the clear waters of Siouxon Creek next to the trail. This is a good place for early season backpacking.
