This moderate trail makes for a nice family diversion, heading up Strawberry Mountain, and rewarding visitors with good views of Lost Lake and Bonaparte Mountain.
The 3.4 mile round trip hike to the summit of Strawberry Mountain departs from the Lost Lake campground and makes its way through pine forest and overgrown brush.
Climbing 890 feet in under two miles, the trail makes its way through the forest and three times crosses a road winding up Strawberry Mountain before terminating in a small meadow with peek-a-boo views down to Lost Lake.
Strawberry Mountain is aptly named, since the creeping groundcover carpets the area around the trail and you might have some delays in reaching the summer thanks to the tasty red berries. The hike is a nice option for families with kids ready to take on a more challenging hike, or for those looking to stretch their legs and find great views close to a campground.
