Highlight: Strawberry Point

The amazing views at Strawberry Point make this a wonderful trail. The views are similar to what you would see at Cedar Breaks National Monument. Make sure to bring your camera to capture sights and even bring lunch for a picnic.

Strawberry Point Trail is a really short and easy trial that leads to an unbelievably beautiful view. You can see the north rim of The Grand Canyon as well as the mountains of Zion Canyon. When you park, there is a little trail that leads you out to the lookout spot. If you hike out all the way on the rocks, you can see the geological survey benchmark. When you're driving to the trail, you will reach a fork that has a sign that says "Strawberry Ridge" with an arrow pointing left. DO NOT GO LEFT if you want to go to Strawberry Point. The arrow takes you to a different trail called Strawberry Ridge. This is a long, moderately difficult trail that takes you back to the highway. I did this trail, too, and it was fun, but does not take you to the lookout spot.

In my opinion the views at Strawberry Point are better than Cedar Breaks National Monument. The trail is really easy to follow from highway 14 to the top.
