From Randle, drive south 1 mile on Highway 131 to Forest Service Road 25. Stay to the right and drive 19 miles to Forest Service Road 99. Turn right and drive 6 miles to Bear Meadow Trailhead. The trail starts on the north side of Road 99.
Trail head was approximately 20 miles from where All Trails lead us. From FS Road 25, drive about 17 miles to FS Road 2516. Drive about 6 miles up and park in a gravel cul-de-sac just before a plaque that has the creed of the Strawberry Mountain lookout post.
Trail is kind of cool, a bunch of volcanic rock and ash with a good view of the lava dome on St. Helens. We turned back early because of the heat, the dogs were pretty smoked.
