It's a little hard to get to the top, but the trail is a great experience. Bring water!

Great to do in the mornings. Gets super hot in the summer so the earlier you get there, the better. You can also to fishing in the lake and have a picknick in the park at the base of the trail.

Great hike to go on. Go early if you want to get a photo on potato chip rock! Quite a bit of switchbacks, but a great hike! If you can hike Half Dome in Yosemite, you can finitely do this!

Absolutely awesome hike, but I seriously suggest you don't do this hike in the height of the summer heat. It will kick your azz if you do. As it was, I was huffen and puffen a bit to say the least.

The Mt Woodson trail starts 1/4 of the way through the Poway Lake Loop. The first mile is a fairly normal ascent going up in altitude a few hundred feet with a long fairly flat stretch in it. If you go early in the day this will likely be shrouded in the mist. Just don't talk about Stephen King's book The Mist or the movie of the same name and you will be fine. This section is essentially a fireroad and thus its wide and manageable without any issues. There are also some trashcans and a picnic table in this part of the hike.

The second mile is the killer. This will take you up to the ridgeline that leads to Mt Woodson. WOW. You are rising up about 1300-1500 feet in a single mile. So expect that every step is a stairmaster step. In addition to that, factor in the lack of shade and its a recipe for HOT as HELL. There are a couple of large boulders that may give a miniature amount of shade and a single tree at about the 3/4 mile mark that you can rest under for a bit along with a ton of other weery up and downhill hikers.

Pro Tip: BRING lots of WATER for your DOGGIES! They will need it a lot and something for them to drink out of. Do not bring midget dogs either as they are numerous areas that you will need to carry them up, unless they can hop up rocks 1.5' multiple times and are in great shape. I saw one guy carrying a small dog and another guy with two weinerdogs that was constantly lifting them over parts of the trail.

The third mile is along the ridgeline. This was by far the easiest section as you got a breeze to help you kewl down since your sweat was able to give a great cooling effect. There is also the fact that they had a great view from along the ridgeline. You can see forever in multiple directions. I always love this part. But the ridgeline was a fairly easy trail to trek along.

Then at the end you have Potato Chip Rock and a rock with a pole sticking out of it next to it. There is also a huge antennae array on top of this hill for radio, tv, or just communication towers.

The return trip is a million times easier than the way up. Definitely something wonderful to experience and I suggest you check this hike out as the endpoint is well worth it. Enjoy the hike my friends...

This was a great hike, took about 2 1/2 hours but it was definitely worth it. Potato Chip rock was smaller than I expected but fun to take pictures on. Make sure to bring water, snacks and some sunscreen. I went early spring time and started early in the morning so it wasn't as hot. It was slightly cool which was perfect weather.

Super hot and crowded trail, had to wait an hour to take a picture on potato chip rock. All so that I could get a picture for my tinder profile.

Mount Woodson trail is well known in Southern California and famous the "potato rock" located at the top! You can begin at the Lake Poway trail on the west side and enjoy views of the water before you ascend up the fairly steep climb. It was a couple hour hike but people of all ages can enjoy this activity. Located off the 15 freeway with plenty of parking and restrooms available at the base. Bring a camera so you can get your photo on the potato chip rock at the top!

Mt. Woodson Trail is one of the most rewarding hikes here in San Diego. Although the trail is relatively long and ALL uphill, it is a dirt trail the whole way with no obstacles. You have to make it to the top even if you get tired because of the great photo opportunity. Potato Chip Rock is at the top and a photo on this rock is sure to make all your friends and family jealous. Trust Me!

It's the famous potato chip rock! It's about a 4 mile hike starting from the bottom at Lake Poway, so a round trip is ~ 8 miles. It's a little difficult for beginners but definitely doable if you're up for the challenge! It can be a little steep, so make sure you stretch beforehand. Also wear the right kind of shoes - there is a lot of loose gravel. Bring enough water and try to start earlier in the day to avoid the heat and the line to take a picture on the potato chip rock!

When hiking this trail make sure to take lots of water to stay hydrated. Take as much breaks and at the top will be rewarding. It's a risk to get on the top, but it's a spectacular view of Poway.
