Ascent Trip Report

There is a can on the peak without a lid and no register, so perhaps someone could take a can, pen, and register.

The Sierra Club's directions aren't great for this hike, so here are mine: Cross Angeles Crest Highway and pick up the trail, which is a very gradual climb up to a saddle. At the saddle, go right and hike along the almost-flat trail that skirts Mount Lawlor (on the right). When you reach at saddle at the base of Mount Lawlor and see the steep trail leading up to Mt. Lawlor, go left and hike over sbout 6 bumps. Strawberry is the last (and highest) bump. On the way back, there is some elevation gain (back over the bumps), which is not noted in the SC's directions. The chain with the empty lidless can is at the highest point in the rocks. This is a fairly large flat peak.

As of this date, May 29, there are tons of wildflowers--Canterbury Bells, Purple Nightshade, Monkey Flowers, Golden Yarrow, Indian Paintbrush, Grinnell's Penstamon and LOTS of Poodle Dog Bush--both the white flower and purple flower variety along with numerous emerging plants.
