- HOW TO GO
Extreme Hiking / Hiking in Strawberry, Sonora, California USA
Hiking trails are spread everywhere across the mountains. There is something for everyone in the Sonora Pass region, as there are all kind of trails, easy, intermediate and high elevation and also long day adventures. One of the best trails to hike is Pinecrest to Strawberry.
It is a 1.8 mi/2.9 km, easy trail with a 300 ft/91.4 m elevation loss. After you reach Pinecrest Lake near the marina, just follow the trail to the dam. Start descending the trail and although you might find it difficult, watch over for the orange blazes, painted on the trees. The trail soon joins a dirt road.
Afterwards, it becomes a ¼ mi/0.4 km, paved road to Strawberry. Keep in mind that if you listen to a horn, you should get to higher ground, because water will be released from the dam. When you are at the lake, stand on the rocks and have lunch, while dipping your feet into the cool water.
