Ascent Trip Report

From the Angeles Crest Highway at the Red Box Picnic area, one can find the Strawberry Peak trail. It's 7 miles roundtrip. Great views from the top of Mt. Wilson and the surrounding mountains. Be careful towards the top - there are some seriously spiky agave cacti - I brushed up on one a bit too hard and it made me bleed!

I ran the trail with the following timeframe:

Left parking lot 6pm
Summit of Strawberry Peak 6:45pm
Return to parking 7:30pm
