    First off, you NEED a vehicle with clearance to complete the drive to the trailhead. You can get to within a couple of miles of the trail with a smaller car, but it is imperative that you have something that can take a bit of a rough ride to the top. You also need a Discover Pass.

    Silver Star Trail is about 4 and a half miles roundtrip. The trail starts off with a pretty steep climb and doesn't offer much reprieve until the end (though there's a few flat places to rest along the way). The terrain was mostly loose rock, and because we went in May, quite a bit of snow close to the top. Be careful with the snow and take your time during this part.

    The view from the top is wonderful, and it's absolutely worth the trek. Be careful on the way down with the snow and the loose rocks that follow immediately after.

    about 2 years ago

    The Thunder Knob trail presents a cool, relatively easy trail with a consistent but gradual incline, and results in some rather grand views of an already pristine area.

    The trail begins at the north loop of the Colonial Creek campground. It immediately takes you over and across Colonial Creek, which with the recent late Spring thaws, was rather powerful. After crossing the creek you're taken through a gorgeous old growth forest and eventually you start to climb various hillocks and rises until you reach the trail's end.

    At one point about halfway through there is an absolutely gorgeous promontory, looking out against Colonial Peak and a heavily wooded valley. It's an ideal resting place for sure.

    Eventually, the trail dips down past the hidden Thunder Lake (which is really a long pond), and rises up again to end at the eponymous Thunder Knob, which overlooks Diablo Lake. Rest here and absorb all that this perfect vision of nature has to offer, and then return to the trailhead, knowing that the way back is much, much easier.
