Strawberry Mountain Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"The Strawberry Mountain Wilderness is alpine country. The Strawberry Range, part of the discontinuous Blue Mountains, has rugged peaks and ridges that will delight any scrambler. The geology of the Strawberry Range is raw and colorful when you observe it up close. Glacial ice has left sharp ridges and peaks surrounding glacial valleys. Summer comes late to the Strawberries, and winter snows linger until mid-July. The wilderness has a mixture of lodgepole and ponderosa pine, true fir, and western larch.
Originally named for its color, Strawberry Mountain is the home to mule deer, elk, mountain lion, and a wide variety of birds. After the winter snows melt, the wilderness is full of colorful alpine wildflowers. Special considerations: This is a popular big-game hunting area in late summer and fall; wear bright colors during hunting season."
