Iron Mountain Professional Review and Guide
"North San Diego County’s Iron Mountain thrusts its conical summit nearly 2,700 feet above sea level, frequently well above the low-lying coastal haze. On many a crystalline winter day, the summit offers a sweeping, 360-degree panorama from glistening ocean to blue mountains and back to the ocean again. Access to the summit— by foot, horse, or mountain bike—is now afforded by a key link in the City of Poway’s ever-expanding multiuse trails system. Expect to have plenty of company on this extremely popular trail."
