Blue Sky Canyon Trail is a 5.5 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Poway, California that features a lake and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, and birding and is accessible year-round.
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.
Very nice hike with a lot of Riparian Oaks which I like. A little confusing at times bc trails aren't all marked especially around the lake itself. The lake loop is gorgeous. Two thumbs up even though I got overheated at mile 5. We hiked at 1:00 and it was at least 90 degrees. So there's that.
Tough but worth it! Not a lot of shade so go early.
great hike! definitely worth the time which was longer than my anticipated 2 hrs. we didn't complete loop and it was 7 miles to Lake Ramona 1/3 way around and back down!
