Lake Poway

  • Lake Poway

The hike: Loop Hike around Lake Poway with a short side trip into Blue Sky Preserve. The hike features scenic views of Lake Poway with a mix of flats, gentle hills and a couple of steeper stretches. As a bonus we will cross into Blue Sky Preserve to enjoy the riparian habitat. We will pass through four of San Diego County's bio-communities: sage scrub, chaparral, oak woodland, and riparian woodland. 4 to 5 miles 400 foot elevation gain and loss; one and a half hours duration.

Needed: Good hiking or walking shoes, sun protection and water are highly recommended.

DIRECTIONS: FROM I-15 TAKE RANCHO BERNARDO ROAD EXIT, HEAD EAST ON RANCHO BERNARDO ROAD/ESPOLA ROAD. TURN LEFT AT LAKE POWAY ROAD. LAKE POWAY ROAD IS APPROXIMATELY 1/2 MILE SOUTH OF THE OLD COACH ROAD/BRIDLEWOOD ROAD TRAFFIC LIGHT INTERSECTION.

Other: Please be on time as we will be leaving on time.

    This will be my first hike since I moved to Escondido in April. I will need to use my GPS (Gretchen) to find this meeting place. Is there an actual address I can input? I would like to get there on time and Gretchen needs to know exactly where she is going.

      The easiest way to get directiions is to click on the locaton link (in this case "Lake Poway"). That will pop up a google map with the destination. Then just click on directions. In this case it was a latitude and longitude but that OK, Google can handle it.
