Poway Creek II

The hike:  Rolling hills with some flat areas. The hike runs along and above Poway Creek. There are a couple of fairly steep sections but no worse then, say, Lake Poway. The goal is to reach Old Pomerado Road. We'll hike out and back turning around after about 50 or 60 minutes. Highlights include a small hidden lake and the (now closed) "Old Stone Lodge" a 1920's roadhouse on the site of the old stage stop. See the link for cool pictures of both. http://powayusd.sdcoe.k12.ca.us/teachers/LFoote/kidsguide/BigStoneLodgeSlides.htm

Distance: 5 miles; time: a bit less than 2 hours; elevation gain: maybe about 350 feet.

Needed: Hiking or running shoes, and water are recommended. Please be on time as we will be leaving on time.

DIRECTIONS: To Creekside Elementary school 12362 Springhurst Dr San Diego, CA 92128 I-15 to Poway Road; east to Springhurst. Please watch street names -- Springhurst is not Spingbrook

    I think I'll be cutting it to close to get there from Pt. Loma in time tonight-and I hate being late:). I'll catch the next one when I can adjust my time schedule without having to rush. Have fun all and hope to meet you soon on a future event.

    I would call our hikes Intermediate. We usually hike at about 3 miles an hour. This hike is flatter than most.
