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.
