Strawberry Fields is an intermediate x-country trail located in the Mosquito Lake Area. The trail is not considered a destination point for the local trail system, but acts as a connector to the variety of trails found in the area. For the most part, Strawberry Fields will be overgrown in the summer months and hard to navigate as a result. Not to mention that it’s unpleasant to ride, as low hanging branches will whack you in the face and sprouting vegetation will nip at your ankles as you traverse this trail.
In my opinion, only a small section of Strawberry Fields is worth riding; the section that Rock and Roll pops out onto (if you choose to descend Rock and Roll, many riders now use it as an up track) and from where it heads north towards Mosquito Lake Road. Adding the northern section of Strawberry Fields to Rock and Roll makes for a fun intermediate descent well worth doing. Make sure to ride this section of Strawberry Fields south to north, ending at the shores of Mosquito Lake.

The best way to access Strawberry Fields is via Rock and Roll. Ride Rock and Roll west to Strawberry Fields, taking Strawberry Fields south (left) towards Dark Forest if you’re looking to ride most of the trail. The north (right) section of Strawberry Fields is a short downhill descending towards Mosquito Lake Road. This section is a lot more fun to descend than to climb and worth doing when combined with Rock and Roll.
