Nestled in the hills of Poway, the Lake Poway Recreation Area not only serves as the water supply for residents, but also has provided exceptional outdoor recreational opportunities since 1972. Get hooked on fishing and boating, head up the mountain on a hike, take aim at archery, or enjoy a leisurely picnic. Park closes at sunset.

What a great hike! Beautiful views! A bit scared of the potato chip rock but worth the pic! I would do it again! Take snacks and plenty of water!

Alot of people, but great hike! :)

Must do! Except long line to take photos on the weekends

Fun hike with a lot to see. Parking lot can fill up quick on busy days. Lots of shade and rest areas along the way. Free to park! Unlike lake Poway park.

One of the best trail San Diego has to offer.. only downside very crowded on the weekends.... go early..

I love this hike! ok if you're a beginner it will seem like a hard hike but to be honest if you go early in the morning and just take your time and rest as many time as needed, but just make it to the end. The line to take picture took about 45min. It's a nice hike just long.

Is this 7 miles round trip? or 7 miles to the rock and another 7 back?
