Strawberry Peak Hike – 12-21-2020

Incredibly this was my first time hiking Strawberry Peak.  I have hiked so many of the local mountains but this one had eluded me for quite some time.

I found the trail enjoyable with it very easy to follow with some signs pointing you in the right direction.  I also found very few hikers as it was a Monday and am sure is much busier on the weekends.  The hike and trail is not very difficult but does have a lot of elevation gain at towards the end with a lot of false summits.  The view at the summit was great with views of the Pacific Ocean and surrounding mountains.  I recommend this hike to everyone wanting to good challenge that does not take all day.  I happened to finish the whole trail up and down within 4 hours and including the time spent resting and taking pictures.  I started around 12:00 noon and finished just past 4:00 pm.  According to Runkeeper, it was 7.39 miles and an elevation gain of 1928 feet.  I did go off trail to check out some views at times.  Overall I was very pleased with this adventure and will likely do it again with some others.

Happy Trails

    1. Sorry, to clarify, the ranger station told me the RedBox trailhead is closed, so curious if there’s an alternate option there or if there’s another way to access.
