Event Description

I've missed all the recent Mt. Woodson hikes and am still eager to do one.  So come for a socially paced, 7mi hike (round trip) to the top and back.  I have yet to do this hike, so please keep that in mind (I will try to do it once before this trip).  Elevation gain is approximately 2300', and the area is gorgeous since the heavy storms.

We meet at 9am in the Lake Poway Parking lot and start by 9:15am. Take I15 and exit Rancho Bernardo Rd.  Head east.  Rancho Bernardo Rd becomes Espola Rd.  Make a left on Lake Poway Rd.  According to the Lake Poway website (, there shouldn't be a charge for parking.  Bring $4.00 for parking in case that info is obsolete. 

Bring enough water for 5hrs (I usually do 1-2 quarts), and a lunch to eat at the top.  Wear good hiking shoes as the terrain can get rocky and don't forget sunscreen.  Rain cancels.
