Strawberry Narrows Trail

USGS QUAD(S): Strawberry Reservoir SE and Strawberry Reservoir SW; GPS Positioning: At trailhead - N. 40.124444 W. 111.152916; at trail terminus - N. 40.130805 W. 111.038805 Starting near Aspen Grove Marina, the Strawberry Narrows Trail winds along the southern shoreline of Strawberry Reservoir. This is a very popular trail for hikers, backpackers and mountain bikes. The rolling trail starts in sage brush and quickly ascends to aspen and pine. Wildflowers, such as lupine, wild geraniums and groundsel can be seen along the trail in addition to wild raspberry bushes. In the middle of the trail are many quiet spots, ideal for non-fee camping, fishing and swimming. The western end of the trail returns to open sage meadows. After crossing two bridges over small creeks, a trailhead sign points to a buck and pole fence at forest road 079. However, the trail will also continue another 1/4 mile to Renegade Point. The Strawberry Narrows Trail is very popular for its unique access to secluded areas of Strawberry Reservoir.
