Pics from our Strawberry trip in 2008

The lift and tire requirements for this run will be somewhat flexible as most of the more difficult stuff is optional. PM me if you don't make the listed requirements and would like to go.

The rock that would push you into painted rock had moved when we went and was not an issue.

Most of the trail is fairly easy

No doubt. Where are we going to meet up?

I am about 75% there. I may be driving up on Wednesday.

We will be meeting off of Highway 50 at mile marker 42. This is between the towns of Kyburz and Strawberry, Kyburz being the last town you will go through.

Although I believe you can gas up in Kyburz i would not count on it and I would fill up in Placerville. There is also a gas station after the trail on our way to camp.

I will be heading out from Sacramento. Google says it is an hour from Hermit to the Highway 50 trailhead.

Imo it would be best to gas up in Pollock pines gas there should be close to the same price and is closer to the trail.

Are we meeting at the trail head before meeting at Hermit Valley? Or will we meet at Hermit Valley and then go to Strawberry Pass?

The plan is to meet at the trailhead on Highway 50. I figured this was the best option sense everyone is coming from different directions.

I will be heading out of Sacramento and will get there early. All are welcome to meet p with me for the drive up. I will give more details when and where as we get closer.

Sure. There seems to be a lot of interest in getting a convoy up the mountain from the Sacramento area so I guess I/we need to figure something out.

I would not mind getting a bite to eat before I head up the hill. Anyone know of a place to eat in Placerville or off SlyPark road?

We can eat and gas up before heading up.

May 11th, 2010, 09:39
I would like to meet somewhere that is easy to find right off the freeway and near a gas station to top off. I am still planning on getting to the trailhead at least half an hour early to make sure I am there for our friends on the other side of the Sierra.

I would prefer Placerville or Pollock Pines to top off and eat. We would need to leave Placerville by 9am to get to the trailhead early. Maybe meet for breakfast around 8am depending on the location.

There's the Silver Fork fuel station on the south side of hwy 50 just before Kyburz if ya like, otherwise, avoid that god-awful off-ramp at Broadway in pville and get off one exit up at Schnell School, make a 2 rights onto Broadway and there's Valero and a VP Racing stations right next to Save Mart. Hopefully my rig will be finished by then so I can make it up for a day and join everyone on the Strawberry pass run!

as far as breakfast goes, Naughty Pine Kitchen in Pollock Pines has gooooood breakfast and is just up the street from Crystal View Shell, also near a couple parts stores for last minute necessities.

Well this is now only nine days away.

Anyone who wants to caravan up with me I am leaning toward McDonald's in Placerville. Cheap and quick on the go.

I will be there around 8:30. It looks like there is gas and a Starbucks nearby.

Address is 1200 Broadway in Placerville.
