Level:Moderate (O)

Location:La Canada Ride Share - Angeles Crest Hwy (Hwy 2), Just N of Foothi

ll Fwy (I-210). Park on Angeles Crest Hwy only.

Moderately paced hike of eight miles with an elevation gain of 1400 feet. We will hike from Red Box Station up the steep, gravely fire road to the Strawberry Meadow trailhead then on to a more moderate trail to the meadow. Backside of Strawberry Peak holds pleasant surprises. We will hike close under granite cliffs and boulder-stacked ridges, springs seep cold water and little meadows sprout tall grasses. Wear sturdy shoes or lug sole boots and bring lunch and three liters of water. Rain cancels.
