Farris and Strawberry are both a little longer and a lot more technical than Strand Hill. Strawberry should not be ridden until the snow melt has slowed, usually later in June but sometimes into July, as the creek crossings can be very dangerous.

If you choose to ride Strawberry, you’re in for some climbing. A rowdy descent, a little more climbing, and a rooty downhill bring you to Brush Creek. Cross the creek and turn left on Brush Creek Road. After 8/10sof a mile of doubletrack, you’ll see a singletrack branching off on the left. This scenic trail follows Brush Creek, and involves some exposed side-hilling, but is usually all rideable and a lot shorter than the road. The trail becomes a grassy two track near the end, then rejoins Brush Creek Road.
