Hike through flower-covered ridgetop meadows nearly all the way from the trailhead to the top of Silver Star Mountain. This route is the easiest way to reach the summit. The open ridges and vistas in the Silver Star area owe their existence to the 1902 Yacolt Burn that started near Stevenson. The fire burned to the northwest, driven by strong east winds, to stop just short of Longview. The burn is named for the town of Yacolt, which was spared when the fire burned the forest surrounding it.
