Vegan ANYONE Hike Up Iron Mountain and Light Lunch (Poway)

You asked for it...here it is. Come get sweaty, chat with other cool Vegans and give your Gluteus Maximus a great workout!

Suggest we hike up Iron Mountain from the trail head on Poway road. https://plus.google.com/104577715697874016683/about?gl=us&hl=en.

Lots of parking but it can get busy on Sat morning.

Iron Mountain is an easy to intermediate hike depending on how fast you go.

We will have two groups, those who want a chilled walk and those who want to burn those muscles...but not too crazy. There is NO age limit here but know your fitness limits.
The idea is to be able to chat and meet others in a friendly way.

It is 6 miles round trip so you will need to be at least active and able to walk up hill on a dirt path. Takes about 3 hours ish. You are responsible for your own health and safety.

We will meet at the trail head at 9:30am sharp. Get the two groups together and hike up the trail. It's good to start early as by midday it's pretty darn hot up there. So please bring LOTS of water, sunscreen and a hat.

At the top we will stop for 20 mins for pics, drinks and light food until we are all back together. Please bring a snack and something to share if you wish. This isn't a pot luck but it's always nice to share.

For those who have time we can also go and have a drink at White Labs tasting rooms afterwards. I am checking to make sure they are open and have Vegan options!

Should be fun and a good place to get to know people. Please PLEASE come with water and no jeans....I know, crazy to say it but I have seen people walking up there with jeans on and no water.

Questions? Message me on here. Cheers
Matt

    Thanks for a mostly fun hike, everyone! Special thanks to everyone who stopped to take care of my klutz a$$ and to Doug and Evan for driving me all the way to Encinitas. I did break both my radius and my ulna! Gonna post pictures in a little while.

      Hi Teresa, if you go to the end of the road there is a parking lot and the trail head is there with bathrooms and a large sign. Pretty easy to spot. I will email out my cell tomorrow also. Looking forward to chatting with you. M.

  • Terry H.

    I'm in! I haven't done a ton of hiking so I'll probably go the chill route. In the process of moving to SD now so assuming my stuff arrives before that weekend (appropriate shoes, clothes, etc) I'm in! I'll know for sure when it gets closer.
