HEY, as of 6/29/2013 it looks like the wildflowers on Ed’s trail loop are finally in full swing!!  Woohoo…the road is of course complete slow potholes…but “everyone” seems to be getting up there!!

A little way up Ed’s trail look close at the rocks to see this plaque:

Further along comes the rock arch on Ed’s trail:

Then, up to the peak of Silver Star Mountain….WOW!

There is an off-shoot trail past the peak that leads to a slope of “Indian Pits”. Check my Google map to see it in blue.

    Hey Scott! Hey do you think you could post a notification on here when the wildflowers are in full bloom? Same goes for hamilton mountain. Thanks!

    Hi Scott! We just hiked this trail, and it was amazing! Wildflowers were in full bloom on June 21, 2015. However, the driving route you provided was out of date. The woman in charge of the campgrounds at Sunset told us that 4109 was impassible to most vehicles out of Sunset. Instead, we had to go around by taking Dole valley Road to 1100, then to 4109. Also, scratched up our car going up 4109, which was dicey. Still worth it, though!
