Strawberry Peak Trail via Redbox Canyon is a 7.2 mile heavily trafficked out and back trail located near Mount Wilson, California that offers the chance to see wildlife and is rated as difficult. The trail is primarily used for hiking and is best used from May until October.
This Strawberry Peak hike offers a ton of great scenery in a relatively short distance. You wind around a ridge on Mt Lawlor with spectacular views, then do a short but tough climb to Strawberry Peak, the highest point in the front range of the San Gabriels at 6,164ft. You’ll earn great views of LA, Mt Wilson, and Mt Baldy. It’s a fun hike on its own, but even more attractive if you want to get a mountain climb in to build confidence for the higher peaks in the area.
