Others are right....it gets pretty steep 1.5 miles in. Early in the trail take a detour off to the "creek side trail"....it is marked and rejoins the main "road" in a short time. Watch for some spider webs crossing the creek side trail if you are first in the morning on it.....it is a tight trail.

Pretty good hike. I would rate this hike as moderate. The first half is very easy, flat, and has lots of shade. The second half is all up hill with some long inclined sections. The second half also offers no protection from the sun.

Nice variety of terrain, changes from dirt trail to rocky to asphalt as you reach Lake Ramona. Big elevation change once on pavement. The trail itself is fine, I felt like I was walking on a road the entire time and that's not my jam. Parking is limited.

This hike is rated easy, which is true for the first half. The inclines to the lake after the halfway point were challenging for me because I'm new to hiking. It was worth the extra stops and breaks to get to the Lake.

Decent hike to the Ramona lake. I will go back to try the Poway loop and shorter trails.
