Starway Trail is a 6.1 mile out and back trail located near Washougal, WA that features a great forest setting and is rated as difficult. The trail is primarily used for hiking and is accessible from May until October.
It's a hard hike but once you get to the top it's really beautiful well worth it! Don't miss out.
Extremely difficult - this trail is a real buttkicker. Avoid at all costs on hot days or you risk a heat stroke. I'm not joking either - this trail nearly wiped me out on a hot August day this year. There's one stretch where you gain something absurd like 2,000 feet in less than 2 miles. The real rub is that you have to lose like 500 feet that you regain on the way up, which of course means you have to regain it again on the way back. Yikes!
Difficulty aside, it's a beautiful trail that sees far less use than any other trail on the mountain so you should absolutely hike it if you are in shape. The roads aren't bad either.
