Transition of a Beautiful Day: Hiking Mt. Woodson

Start of Our Hike @ Espola Road Corner Lake Poway Road
Total Mileage: about 9 miles round trip from Espola corner Lake Poway Road. We usually avoid the $5 parking inside Lake Poway. We either hike much longer from Blue Sky Ecological Reserve, or from Espola Rd.
Change in Elevation: 2400 ft
Inside Lake Poway Park 
The mileage would be a mile less if we parked inside Lake Poway Recreational Park. But for us, a mile more means not only saving $5 parking fee but also gaining more cardiovascular exercise.

  3. Thanks a lot, Webbielady and Chay.

    @Chay, compared to how others would pose there on top of that rock, really at the edge with their legs hanging on air, mine would look just well..."ok....I was there", hehe! Not as brave as others as well.
