This trail begins at Starvation Creek State Park (I-84) and ends at Mitchell Point Trail #417. Leaving from the Starvation Creek Trailhead (120’), head west along US Hwy I-84 on Mount Defiance Trail #413, which is an asphalt trail that quickly becomes gravel. After 0.25 mile the trail reaches the beginning of Starvation Ridge Trail #414. Turn left (south) onto #414 and begin the series of switchbacks that climb 0.7 mile to Starvation Ridge (1,160’). The trail continues climbing south following Starvation Ridge for a further 1.8 miles to the trails end at the junction with Mitchell Point Trail #417 (3,250’).

Loop opportunity: Hikers can return to the Starvation Creek Rest Area Trailhead on Starvation Ridge Trail #414 or by making an 8.7 mile loop by turning right onto Mitchell Point Trail #417 and following it for 1.9 miles to Mount Defiance Trail #413. Turn right (north) onto #413 and follow it 4.1 miles to the trailhead.
