A very enjoyable hike with great views at San Gabriel Front Range. Last mile up to Strawberry Peak much more streneous than the beginning but very fun. I remember having had near misses with those prickly yuccas.
Have done this route on other occassions, but this time I had my family come with me as a Father's Day present. Every time I do this route, I'm convinced that the ridge from Lawlor Saddle to the summit of Strawberry is well more than a mile. But the sign says 1 mile.
