One of the most popular attractions in Poway is Iron Mountain. This six-mile round trip hike, with varying degrees of ups and downs, has scenery that’s ever changing at every turn. Sometimes you’ll see the occasional jogger or runner but you’ll always see people hiking . . . with their friends, their families or even their dogs.
Besides Iron Mountain, Poway has over 65 miles of hiking trails. These trails vary in length and difficulty and some even provide incredible lake views. Take for instance the Lake Poway Loop Trail, a 2.75 mile trail around Lake Poway. The Sumac Trail and the Lake Poway to Blue Sky Trail are both only 1.5 miles of hiking trails and good for all skill levels. There’s also the Mount Woodson Trail, a very steep trail, which is not recommended for beginners.
If hiking isn’t your forte, but you still enjoy the outdoors, you’ll be pleased to find the Maderas Golf Club. This Johnny Miller masterpiece has been rated the top Golf Course in San Diego County for seven consecutive years by Zagat Survey. It’s beautifully designed with cliffs that wind through the course, creeks, and forests all around.
