I am in San Deigo for the Weekend, celebrating one of my besties birthdays and we wanted to make sure to get in a little physical activity before over indulging!
You will begin the hike at Lake Poway. During the week parking is free but on weekends expect to pay to park in the lot.
We started hiking around 11 and finished at 2:30. We probably hung out on the summit for 30 to 45 minutes.
There are trail markers all along the hike, but the mileage can be odd, sometimes it will tell you how far you have come and other times it will tell you how much further you have to go.
When we reached the summit we were pretty dang tired… the hike is about 90% uphill and in full sun. We were excited to chill at the top and enjoy our summit beer.
Shoutout to Mother Earth and their Cali Creamin’
I brought 32 oz. of water and could have been happy with more! Keep in mind that it is all uphill to the chip rock and then completely downhill back to the Lake.
If you can get there early I would recommend an early start instead of hiking in direct sun!
Happy Hiking and enjoy the green!
