Need to Know

Despite the trail naming confusion, the route is mostly intuitive when you are out there. Regardless, wrong turns could be fun.

Description

This trails helps make an enjoyable lollipop loop with Strawberry West if you are starting from either the Doe Creek trailhead or the High Lonesome Hut trailhead. Thanks to the folks who have done recent trail work and put in some nice bridges where needed.

The trail travels through a mostly pine tree dominant forest over a crushed granite trail surface with plenty of rocks to navigate and a few easy rock garden areas. The trail can be done either direction.

Many trails in this area have name "Strawberry" in them and there does not seem to be an agreement across many platforms about what trails are what. I suggest examining the map beforehand and downloading before you go out.

From High Lonesome Hut parking: follow the directions on MTB Project or onX Backcountry for Strawberry Loop.

From Doe Creek TH: The Doe Creek Trail will T-intersect with Strawberry West trail. Take a right or left for the loop described above. Going left should make for a slightly more enjoyable experience as you get all the downhill on Strawberry East in one chunk.

From Meadow Creek Reservoir: A longer version of this ride starts from Meadow Creek, at the east end of this trail. Ride the lesser-traveled eastern extent through lots of forest and some meadows to drop down into the creek valley and complete the loop.

Pretty fun downhill. Rides entirely downhill or uphill depending on the direction you take.

Really like the option to make a loop (lollipop) where you ride Strawberry West to Strawberry East and then back to meet the main trail.
