Drove from Irvine to this trail from 5:30am, arrived at roughly 6:30 and the sunrise views were gorgeous. The trail itself isn't so bad until I decided to do the extra challenge and summit Mt. Lawlor as well. The climb there after going down from Strawberry isn't too bad, albeit I can see it being considered somewhat dangerous as it's a lot of rock climbing and navigating narrow passages on the side of a mountain. But the real devil is the downhill from the peak, I fell, and I counted, 7 times due to it being very steep. I should've gone the longer path and do a longer loop, but oh well. Still a nice view, especially the morning sunrise!
