Hike down Chestnut Mountain trail until you hit the intersection with Coffee Creek trail on the left. Take Coffee Creek trail up Chestnut Mountain until you see side trail to the bluff. Starr Mountain is west of Chestnut Mountain and separated by Gee Creek.

Trail was marked in the beginning but then the blazes disappeared and the trail was overgrown. Ended up finding the road and coming back down. I was not impressed.

Don’t use the directions attached to the app unless you want to end up at the start of somebody’s driveway and no signal to be able to get yourself out of the rocky roads and steep mountain turns

Good trail you’ll have to deal with hiking up the mountain but it’s not to bad all in all good hike. We hiked this in mid February and saw lots of bear scat on the trail

Started at trailhead beside gee creek. Walked 1 mike then came back. Nothing to see but trees at that point

The trail is well marked for the first several miles. We made it up to the ridge then came back down, about 7 miles round trip. The views are probably amazing but it was super foggy for us. Will be hiking this trail again, hopefully to the end.

Trail begins right before Starr Mountain #190 sign and turns into the woods. Trail is marked good the first half. One sharp turn about a mile in is easy to miss. There are quite a few large lose rocks. Once to the switch backs your almost to the top of Starr Mtn. On top of the mountain it's a nice ridge walk.

Much less exciting than Gee Creek. First mile just up hill.
