Strawberry Mountain

Grant County, Oregon

Malheur National Forest

Fees: none

Activity: hiking

Elevation: 6700'-9038'

Current status (as of 4/19/24): not blooming

Notes: You can reach the summit of Strawberry Mountain from either the north or south; the southern approach from the Road's End trailhead is much easier. But if you want to visit Little Strawberry Lake and the meadows at the head of Onion Creek, the northern approach is probably better. (From the north, it's possible to do a loop hike using the Onion Creek and Strawberry Basin Trails. Several longer backpacking loops are also possible.)

Peak wildflower bloom on Strawberry Mountain is typically from late June through July into early August, but there may be some flowers blooming from early June until the end of August.*

Typical year:

Featured plants: Potentilla brevifolia
