From Breckenridge, Drive south on Colorado 9 to Hoosier Pass. Park at the signed, Hoosier Pass parking area before Colorado 9 starts down towards Alma. This is the trailhead.
Photo #1 and Photo #2 show most of the route. On the west side of the parking area, start up a dirt road which heads northwest. At 11,600, stay left at and continue up the good road (Photo #3) to 12,100 where the road crosses a large, open saddle - Photo #4. Stay on the road as it curves west to a gate.
Turn right at the gate and hike up to some old mining roads. Turn right again and zig zag northwest up North Stars southeast shoulder - Photo #5 and Photo #6. Youll probably find a faint trail on the upper shoulder. Near 13,200, angle left beneath the 13,400-foot point on the east end of the summit ridge and follow the trail to a small saddle on the summit ridge.
Hike west along the narrow ridge - Photo #7. Once on a high point, near the middle of the ridge, the summit becomes more obvious - Photo #8. Continue along the ridge (Photo #9) and over a few remaining rugged sections (Photo #10) to reach the summit - Photo #11.
It is possible to drive higher than the Hoosier Pass parking area. The 4WD road continues up to 12,100 where youll find parking off to the right.
