This connector trail is part of the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT), which spans 2,650 miles from Mexico to Canada, and runs through 3 states: California, Oregon, and Washington.
This is a nice connector trail that runs from Saddle Junction on the east to Strawberry Junction on the west. There is really nice mountain scenery along the trail, with interesting rock outcroppings and lots of huge ponderosa pines and other coniferous trees.
Water is available at Strawberry Cienega. Cienega is a Spanish word for spring.
Just east of Strawberry Divide is the Strawberry Junction Campground. This campground has 3 campsites and a vault toilet.
