Well maintained, not too crowded, and amazing views. The last .5 miles was the most difficult part of the trail, but worth it for the view.

11/27/2020 Route 2 is open, from I-210, until the Red Box & entrance to Wilson. Parking is limited so plan to arrive as early as possible.Trail is in good condition. There are parts that are narrow & close to the edge so Eyes on the Trail! The last mile or so is steep & rocky. Overgrown greeneries are seen sporadically otherwise you'll find yourself exposed to all the weather elements. Today was generally sunny with chilly winds on approach to the 2nd & 3rd false peaks up until the very top. So layer up. Logged in 7.20 miles, 3.5 hours.

Went out at 12 pm (was tryna doing another trail but it was closed) and fell upon this one. SO worth it. Beautiful hike especially for a fall day, breezy 70 but got up to 60 towards the peak. Didn’t make it to the peak (it’s steep!) but excited to try again.

I hiked on 11/26/20. I arrived at approximately 0550, it was sooooo windy and cold, the temp was approximately 39 degrees. By the time I took off and started I was able to see the sunrise! Myyyy what a beautiful sight! the first half is quite easy but the second half as others have said is a bit more challenging but doable. Overall the views were beautiful the entire time. Round trip was about 4 hours and I spent about 20 minutes at the peak. If you’re going very early layer up and be ready for the winds.

trail is in great shape. first half is pretty easy, but the second half definitely gets the heart rate up. pretty exposed for most of it, so definitely a better hike for a cool day.

Very windy day so the dust was flying and it was pretty cold when the wind was blowing and in the shade of the hillside but warm in the sun so use layers. First half is pretty relaxed but there is some scrambling during the second half where there are around three false peaks. Great hike though and a good workout.

Third time is a charm! The first two times I attempted to start this hike it was either smoky and too hot or the gate was close to get to Redbox. Overall a great hike. Challenging incline halfway going up. Started early and only three other people ahead of me. Cold during November so layer up and wear a beanie. Needs a little clean up.

Hiked on 11/22/2020 , this hike is beautiful has amazing views and the temperature was just right , a little bit windy on the top , it gets a little bit hard the last 2 miles but at the beginning of the trail I would rated more as moderate hike , the highway 2 still closed but you can still parked on the red box or on the street , I’ll suggest you to go early on the day the trail is really exposed , other than that beautiful hike

HikingGreat!

Tried to hike from Colby Canyon with my normal trainers but was too slippery, come to Red Box this time with my new hiking shoes and it was much easier than Colby route. Bring a jacket as it gets a bit windy up the peak.

We hiked part of this Sunday November 22. The trail is now open--the road is closed at Red Box but the lot and shoulder were full of cars. However, this hike was very quiet...maybe only half a dozen people on a Sunday. Keep an eye out for mountain bikes.

Absolutely gorgeous day for an early morning Strawberry Peak hike. Temperature started comfortably cool but not chilly or cold, and started getting warm on the way down. And not a single other person there to enjoy it, but not because the trail was closed. Highway 2 is closed at the trailhead and the Redbox Canyon picnic parking lot is closed and being used by the forest fire recovery crews, but the Haramokngma American Indian Cultural Center parking lot next to it had no restrictions (other than perhaps an Adventure Pass parking permit which I have, but no one bothered me there) and the trailhead itself had nothing to indicate it was closed.

HikingClosed

Tried to hike this trail on 11-5-2020 the whole area surrounding this hike is CLOSED because of the recent fires not safe to hike in the canyon for a good while. They will ticket your car if you park where they are working.

I did this hike in August, sadly from what I can ascertain the Bob Cat Fire blazed all the way to the parking area. I believe from the maps I saw that the trail and the hike are still there, much of the beautiful views are now of charred land. My day in August 2020 was a great one for my Full Trip report go to: https://losangelescountyhikingpursuingbalancethruadventure.wordpress.com/2020/10/20/strawberry-peak/

Loved this trail! Not overly difficult just a steady incline to the top without shade. Beautiful views and fun signs at the top.
