Things To Do In Poway, CA

Potato Chip Rock: Potato Chip Rock is a fascinating rock that hikers love to take selfies on. It is located on top of Mount Woodson near Poway, California, and can be reached by an 8-mile long hike on a fairly difficult trail. With an elevation gain of 1,700 feet, it is steep and it goes straight up once you reach the trailhead after looping around Poway Lake. The trail is well maintained and well-marked. From the top of the mountain, you still have about a half mile of scrambling over some cool boulders before reaching Potato Chip Rock, although the view is spoiled by a bunch of communication antennas. You will see Potato Chip Rock from far away, it is just a sliver of stone jutting out over a precipice. Scrambling to the end of it is scary, especially knowing that it is inevitable that one day it will break.

Old Poway Park: Old Poway Park is one of the favorite parks in town, spacious and full of all sorts of activities and attractions. You can stroll through it along the meandering trails, have a family picnic, or get the feel of California in the early 20th century by hopping on the fun Poway Midland Railroad cable car. The Depot Store at the train station has wooden Thomas trains for kids to play with. You can also visit a fascinating Poway Heritage Museum or explore the beautiful turn-of-the-century Nelson House, both perfect activities for a rainy day. On Saturday morning, a farmers market brings folks looking for fresh produce and home-made goodies.

Iron Mountain: The Iron Mountain is a mountain range located in San Bernardino County, California, part of the mountain complex between the city of Poway and Ramona. One of the most popular trails up the mountain is 5.3 miles long, with an elevation gain of 1,000 feet, with easy access to San Diego, fairly challenging and offering spectacular views. The trail passes through a corridor of planted oak trees, the only shade on the trail. It continues through fields of wildflowers that alternate with large granite boulders. A few switchbacks will take you to the peak of the mountain, where you can rest on a bench and enjoy the views of entire San Diego. This is not a good hike to attempt in the summer as it gets so hot and dry that many hikers have to be evacuated by helicopter due to dehydration.

Mount Woodson Trail: The Mount Woodson Trail is a fairly difficult 6.4-mile trail with an elevation gain of 1,800 feet. It has a number of steep uphill segments that are not suitable for beginners. Nevertheless, Mount Woodson is the highest peak in the area and thus it offers an irresistible challenge to many hikers, especially as at the end of it is the famous Potato Chip Tock, a curious rock formation that looks like a potato chip jutting out over an abyss. The trail runs through alternative patches of chaparral full of wild flowers and large granite boulders. The views along the trail of Lake Poway and Palomar Mountain are spectacular. The trail is well maintained and easy to follow, but it goes through mostly dry and hot area and requires a lot of water.
