This trail is open to hiker, horse and bicycle use. The map shows the trail starting at Bear Meadow (south end) but the best way to ride it is to shuttle up to where FR2516 intersects the trail. From there you can ride the South section, the North section or drop off the North section on the 213 (Green River) and ride down to the 26 road and Green River Horse Camp. If you don't have shuttle support, park you car at either the north end or on the 26 road and climb the 213/use the 26 road to make it a loop.

From Forest Road 2516 the trail heads north toward the peak. From Road 2516 south, the trail takes you through timber to tie in with the Boundary Trail #1 near Bear Meadow. A short spur trail (0.25 mile from Road 2516) takes you to the site of the old fire lookout on Strawberry Mountain. On a clear day you might see the lava dome inside the crater of Mount St. Helens.

This trail was developed by miners sometime before 1895. Today you will be walking through silver forests in places where the lateral blast from the 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens climbed up to the top of Strawberry Ridge, spilling over in places before the power of the blast dissipated.

      A couple inches of snow along the ridge. The lower part of the descent is pretty mucky

      Strawberry ridge has seen a good deal of brushing and tread work this season and she is riding mighty fine.
