Strawberry Spur Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"This route to Strawberry Peak is one of the steepest, most exciting treks in the Front Range—a heart-pounding journey that includes some class 3 scrambling on the exposed face of the peak. Those who conquer the Mountaineers’ Route will earn some serious bragging rights in addition to spectacular views and a sense of accomplishment . . . just don’t try this one if you’re even mildly afraid of heights."
-- Casey Schreiner , Day Hiking Los Angeles (The Mountaineers Books).
"Beginning at nearly 4,600 feet in the scenic Angeles National Forest near Mount Wilson, this course wraps around magnificent mountain slopes. The sunnier ridges host yucca and cactus, while the shaded areas shelter moss and pine trees. A fragrant sage meadow in the saddle between two peaks has pine trees with enormous cones. The enormous rock face of Strawberry Peak towers above. Along the way, there are occasional narrow and precipitous trails, expanses of pine forests, large granite boulders, and numerous stream crossings. The final few miles descend along wide switchbacks."
