Likely In-Season!
This trail is not on current park maps. Do not hike if signed do not enter.

Stats are to Star Peak 2,359. This trail is located in the MaHaTawk range. To reach the base, one can go to 19th avenue and Dobbins road, and go south on 19th avenue to its southern end where there is a large parking area.

Take a trail west and slightly south for about 200 meters. At this point. the Warrior trail takes a sharp left, and heads steeply up a prominent ridge for about 1 mile, to the summit of 'star peak'. The elevation gain is about 1000 feet. One can descend the same way, or follow a eastern ridge for 1.2 miles to the MaHaTawk trail, and turn left and return to the trailhead. One can also turn right at Star peak, and in .5 mile meet the Alta Trail. Either take the Alta Trail to the left and descend 1.5 miles to the San Juan road. or turn right and hike 3 miles to the Alta Trailhead at San Juan Point. For most people, the ascent up the warrior trail will take at least 25 minutes.
