This more challenging hike to Woodson Mountain’s summit (compared to the east approach) takes you through a veritable obstacle course of gigantic boulders. The variety of shapes is amazing, from smooth and rounded to angular or shattered. Begin at the grassy picnic area on southwest shore of Lake Poway, and follow either of two wide trails southeast (they soon join together). After skirting the south shore and dipping to cross Warren Canyon, you come to a trail junction at 0.8 mile. Turn right on the signed Mount Woodson Trail and climb east on a steep grade through sage scrub and chaparral. The white-flowering ceanothus, occurring in dense patches, comes into full bloom hereabouts around March.
