Hiked to the top from Strawberry basin with my friends Karl, Rob, and Ember. Beautiful sunny weather, but on top the wind was blowing about 50 mph. There was some snow but no ice and easy to do without crampons. Awesome day!

Perfect weather and a smooth hike. I took the roads end trail to the summit and made car to car in 2.5hrs. My topo had a junction at about a mile in that you can see the two trails on google maps. However, when hiking you really can't find it. So just make sure you stay on the main thoroughfare then follow the signs. The lightning touches on the top are pretty radicle.

I highly recommend the longer trail (Strawberry Basin)--takes you by Strawberry Lake, Strawberry Falls (looks like something from Central America!), and beautiful wildflowers.

Climbed this mountain via the Roads End trail in early fall of 2009 when I was about 15 years old with my grandpa and younger brother. There was still quite a bit of snow much of the way, but fortuneatly the trail was fairly easy to follow. I tripped and slid down a very icy cliff and ended up having to have a rope thrown down to me as I hung there. Closest I have ever come to dying. Despite this crazy incident, the summit was breathtaking and very much earned.

RedwicWhat a great peak!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 1, 2011


I really enjoyed this peak. I summited via the Roads End Trail #201A. What took me totally by surprise were the *many* hunters also using the trail and surrounding slopes. There were more hunters parked at the trailhead than I had ever previously seen at any other trailhead. The mountain itself had an excellent view but was definitely the windiest place I had been all year.
This was the first of seven Oregon CoHPs I visited in a two-day span that weekend.

Date Climbed: Jul 20, 2011


Went up with my wife and had a great hike. Lots of snow at the 8,000 saddle, fairly steep and corniced at the top. We skipped this and headed up talus up the face of the mtn until intersecting the trail.

I love this mountain! Summited with so much snow, never been to the area before, lost the trail shortly after Strawberry Falls and bushwacked the rest, it was great! Not a soul up there! Gorgeous view!

Hiked up to the summit with my son Jeremy from the Roads End Trailhead. We had the mountain to ourselves and had an amazing hike.

After summiting Indian Springs Butte; Mike, Joshua, Rico and I cut over to the south side trail to Strawberry Mountain. It was a hot, sunny day and the burn on the west side of the ridge, which is the trail side, ensured that we were in the full sun the entire way. Still, it was a beautiful hike.

Hiked the Onion Creek Trail route on a sunny and clear day and bivouaced on the summit overnight under a clear sky and a full moon. Swifts(?) flew much of the night about the summit, apparently feeding.

A nice hike to a cool summit. Rode my bike to the singletrack section a mile and a quarter in. Very dusty. 1:10 to the summit, 50 minutes back to the car. My GPS said it was 7 miles RT with 1400+ gain. Beautiful area, will be back to do more things here.
P.S. Cows aren't that smart. Had a couple block my way on CR 65 on the way there for a minute.

Date Climbed: Sep 6, 2008


I decided to climb this mountain on my way home. It is very prominent from Highway 26. Met some bow hunters near the trailhead who were camping below. I saw at least eight deer in the area. One buck was right by the trail and allowed me take some photos of him. The summit is shaped like a pyramid which reminded me of some of my local mountains. There were butterflies everywhere.

This was my third visit to the Strawberrys. It was my first summit of Strawberry mountain and my second Strawberry range summit.

We entered from the south and finished with a scramble up the south ridge. It was a clear morning with long reaching views.

as we decsended a low cloud front enveloped the plains and the foothills far below. Beautiful area, with great hiking and scrambling opportunities.

We stopped here for a warm-up on our way to climb Rainier. The views were great even as the mountain recovered from a major forest fire.

bmwboarder7Best Sunsets  Sucess!


My buddy and I summitted on our 2nd day in the area, and then decided to sleep on the summit. It was beautiful. With no other major mountains around, we could literally see stars below us on the horizon. The sun took hours to set, and it was all beautiful. So many colors of red and orange. There is a perfect spot for two at the top. It was even a good temperature the whole time. Probably the coolest place that I have ever slept.

I Climbed Strawberry with my friend Jim Wilton and my brother. This was the first mountain my brother had ever climbed and from that moment on he has been hooked. This was also the last mountain I would climb for awhile as I left for the Army in December and would not get many chances to climb there.

Beautiful area, much less crowded than 73, last time I was here. The flag in Dean's pic was already there, although on the ground. I followed the (new) trail, but scrambled up to the ridge on dry ground north of where the trail comes out of the meadow after watching someone slide off the small cornice and 20' down the snow where the trail crested the ridge.

Date Climbed: Oct 13, 2006


It was probably the last chance weekend to climb Strawberry Mountain, this Friday the 13th in October. The trail was already icy on the lower sections, around Strawberry Lake and Strawberry Falls, but the sun warmed the upper ridges and they were dry. It is really a nice hike up to Strawberry Falls, and around the front ridge where the peak comes into view. We saw a flock of black crows flying around the summit and in the dead pine trees in the fire burn area near timberline, that added to the spooky Halloween feel of the whole scene.

This is really a beautiful trip all around, including the drive over from Eugene the night before. Leaving just after lunch, and driving through Sisters and Prineville, we still arrived just after sunset, and had to find the campground in the dark. (about 5.5 hours!) But the drive over, with the sunset on the hills and peaks in the painted desert country was fabulous.

The hike up to the summit was fairly easy. A bit slippery at points. But it only took about 3.5 hours up, walking at a leasurly pace and taking many pictures, and about 2.5 hours to get back to the car. Really a fun hike, despite the long drive. One suggestion. It was cold overnight in the campground, so plan for a chilly (20's) evening, prior to the climb. So be prepared and dress accordingly for this time of year.
