    The hike begins beside Lake Poway. There can be lots of action at the Lake. I spotted white pelicans when visiting. The strenuous hike climbs up Mt. Woodson among fantastic, rounded rocks. There are striking vistas of Lake Poway, the surrounding valleys, & ridgelines. The top of Mt. Woodson is studded with electronic towers. There’s often a line of hikers waiting to have their photo taken atop peculiar potato chip rock.

    This was an Amazing trail. We started from the Ramona Fire Station. We have done many of the SD trails and this was by far my favorite. Perfect day!

    Took the trail around from hwy 67 that goes up the west side. The service road is too steep to take going both ways.

    I love this hike. It's challenging, but very rewarding when you get to the top. Beautiful vistas of Ramona and the Cuyamaca Mountains (Cleveland National Forest). Awesome sunsets with view of the coast on clear day. Pet friendly - leashed.

    Surprisingly, best views before you reach the top. Very pretty vistas on a clear day. Good exercise. Can be strenuous if you're not use to inclines.
