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.
