5 Strawberry Loop
This 12½ mile trail and its spurs lead to some spectacular vistas. It starts near Aspen Mirror Lake near the town of Duck Creek and about a mile north of Highway 14. It heads south from the trail head and crosses Highway 14 near the east edge of Duck Lake. The trail then heads west and passes the Duck Creek Visitors Center. From the Visitors Center the trail turns south and passes the Ice Cave which provides a great place to climb into and “chill out”. Continuing south, you pass a couple of pull-outs that provide outstanding vistas to the south, overlooking Deep Creek and the Zion Canyon area. This trail then turns east and drops down Lars Fork and eventually ties into the Strawberry Valley where it turns north and ties back into Highway 14.
