Overview: Very short walk out to Strawberry Point.

Hike: From the parking area, which has a vault toilet and room for about ten vehicles, head out on the trail (signed) through the fence to the right of the restrooms. The trail heads slightly uphill through the trees and in just a moment you are at Strawberry Point. There are paths leading to the rim edge for excellent views of the pink/orange hoodoos just below you, and south towards Zion in the distance.

As you make your way along the edge of the rim, a narrow rock peninsula leads out to the edge of Strawberry Point. The path is only about three feet wide, with steep drops on both sides as you step out onto the peninsula, but then widens to about five or six feet the rest of the way out. Walk as far as you are comfortable, there is a survey mark and some short metal poles out at the "end". Views are outstanding from here.

Retrace your steps back to the parking area once done. Use caution when along the edge of the rim, the drops are steep. Keep an eye on young children.

    To hike
    From Long Valley Junction (US HWY 89 & UT 14) head west on UT-14 for 7.9 miles to Strawberry Point Rd. Turn left on Strawberry Point Rd (graded dirt road) and take south for a little over 8 miles to the end of the road. There is parking for about ten vehicles at the end of the loop. The final half mile or so of the road is a little rougher but okay for most vehicles. If you don't want to drive the final rough portion, there is a parking area for the Virgin River Rim Trail just past the junction of Strawberry Point Rd (FR 58) and Strawberry Ridge Rd (FR 239)
