Overview

This route goes through the chaparral covered south side of Mt Lawlor to the top of Strawberry Peak. Expect a gently climbing trail at first that really gains elevation the the last mile. Panoramic views of the southern San Gabriel Mountains grace the entire route.
Features: Views — Wildflowers — Wildlife

Runner Notes

The first 2 miles of this trail could be good for trail running. The remainder is steep and has some sections of scrambling.

Description

This is the Strawberry Peak run from the east. Take Hwy 2 to Red Box. Cross Highway 2 (watch out for cars!) to find the trail from the parking lot. One you find the trail, it is a slow climb up and around Mt Lawlor. There is no shade, and watch out for rattlesnakes!

Once the trail rounds Mt Lawlor, Strawberry Peak comes into view. The last .8 miles is where you'll really climb with just a little scrambling. The scrambling is easy and nothing like the Class 3 scramble on the other side of Strawberry Peak. The views are great the entire run but once at the top, you'll be rewarded with 360-degree views of the San Gabriels and with the satisfaction of just having climbed the tallest peak in the front range!
