    This is a really challenging loop, given the distance involved, but rewarding in both views and varied terrain. You can make it even more challenging by adding Mt Lawlor to the loop, which adds a very steep ascent and descent to an otherwise long and challenging loop.

Colby Canyon - Strawberry Peak - Strawberry Meadow Loop
Climbing up Strawberry Peak from the west just plain sucks. From the top of Colby Cyn Trail to Strawberry Peak the trail is basically unidentifiable over the first hill or two. Once you clear that, you'll be bouldering straight up the mountain, so be prepared. Don't take your dog on this route...they won't be able to climb up. I would not want to try coming back down the western route, it's way to steep. Might as well make a day of it, continue down the eastern side, then enjoy the much gentler trail around Strawberry Meadow.
