California, United States
Strawberry Peak (6164 feet) is a prominent peak in the San Gabriel Mountains of Los Angeles County, California. It is located about 10 miles north of Pasadena, and 28 miles from Los Angeles, along the Angeles Crest Highway. Strawberry Peak is the tallest of the front range peaks, being three feet higher than nearby San Gabriel Peak. Both can be widely seen from greater Los Angeles and the San Gabriel Valley, and are popular with hikers. Other prominent nearby peaks include Josephine Peak and Mount Wilson. Strawberry Peak was named by mountaineers over a century ago, who felt the peak resembled an enormous upside-down strawberry.
