To Do With Bitty Map

Beautiful hike, gave it only 4 stars because there was a ~45 min wait to climb potato chip rock for a picture.

awesome beach run Walk

This was a great trail with mountain views of San Bernardino and Riverside county. There is plenty of wildlife to view. Today it was coyotes and woodpeckers. Recent rain made the trail slippery. Awesome views of meadows and California live oaks.

Overated. To many people and dogshit everywhere.

Overcrowded. Overrated. And relatively boring most of the hike. A nice workout and a gorgeous wait in line at the top. This hike wouldn’t be so bad if not as many unprepared and rude people hiked it. Go extremely early if you want to enjoy yourself and the nature around you.

Good hard hike for a nice workout. Did this during summer so I Started at 6 am with my dog and ended at 9/10 am. Start and end with a walk near the lake. Potato chip was a little disappointing and you have to climb up on to get to but still a nice fun hike.

This is an easy paved trail with enough scenery. The shut-ins are very pretty. We like hiking part of the connected US Forest service trail too.

Try to go early in the morning. You’ll bit the sun and the line to take a photo at the famous potato chip rock.

This is my second time on this hike and is fun and challenging as always. I went with a ton of my family so we kept stopping to take pictures. This trail is definitely a leg killer but if you push yourself you will make it! People need to pick up their dogs crap and throw the bags away! I’m trying to enjoy a nice hike without worrying about stepping in dog crap! It’s also very crowded, but really fun!

Very crowded, kind of boring

Trail itself was great. People hiking not so much. Unleashed dogs. Poop bags left on trailside everywhere. Way to crowded. Worst of all was the amplified music, seriously invest in some headphones if you really need the tunes. And the mountain bikers, why even try on a weekend?

we loved this hike. Alot of people was on the trail and at the "chip". Rain made it a lil slippery coming back down but overall it was amazing.


This is a really nice hike. It is a difficult one though. There is alot of elevation change over a short period. Start early, understand it will be cold at the top. It had rained the day before and the puddles further up this hike were all ice.

The trail itself is extremely well marked. Just keep following towards Mt Woodson. The first few miles are about 10 feet wide, well maintained and as the trail progresses it slowly gets narrower but never much below about 3 feet wide. The very steep parts all have rock stairs on the trail.

As you're hiking you might be wondering where the peak is. Look for all the anteneas. They are just above potato chip rock.

If you don't want to pay for parking, you can park across the street from the entrance, but it adds about 1.5 miles round trip to your hike and a bit of elevation.

Trails are well kept and found some very clean bathrooms at the park. Large variety of plants and the streams and ponds were cool. Saw two COYOTES on the trail. They looked scared and went on their way. Will be back!

Drive 45 minutes often to this trail because it’s so beautiful and neat. Definitely recommend to everyone!!

Beautiful, crisp New Year`s Day, quiet trails... great way to start a new year.

Beautiful and scary at top!

First of all follow the signs and stay on the trails. I got stranded before entering parking and took an alternate route which lead through non existing paths. Finally made my entry through a different point than Poway lake.

It took me around 5 hours to complete this trail
One of the best experience , saw people of all ages making with enthusiasm. At halfway I almost got exhausted due to the climb but got encouraged by fellow climbers.
Potato chip rick was crowded as usual. I made it back to the Poway lake by sunset.
Will recommend for all who want to take the challenge of completing this difficult trial.

tough hike ...I got sore knees and hips FOR 10 DAYS !

Loved this trail, it was a little over 6 miles and saw a coyote and a mountain lion. Beautiful views highly recommend.

A good workout for sure. We started at the lake and walked up. Paths were pretty wide and well laid out. Some shade but mostly exposed so I’d suggest wear a hat and sunglasses.
As an aside...Some groups take a long time at the photo opp at the rock that caused a long (45 min) line on a Friday. Maybe there should be a sign reminding people to be more considerate.
Not a beginner hike but saw people of all age and size on this trail! Just need determination.

Did a sunrise hike. Bomb diggity

group of us did it lake Poway took us 2 hours from the parking lot to the potato chip. Nice cool day lots of people. great trip even with my bad knees and pending hernia surgery.
