Potato Chip Hike  Mount WoodsonCheck Availability



Get your photo taken on this awesome ‘potato chip’ rock outcrop. The hike starts in Poway and follows a fire trail that overlooks the Poway dam for about 3 miles. The trail narrows as you start to climb the mountain and gets steep at times but is great for beginners. The view from the top is amazing on a clear day you can see the ocean and downtown San Diego.
