Mt Woodson via Hwy 67 offers breathtaking vistas. This hike is moderately strenuous, and easy to access due to its convenient location. In the summer, be sure to take enough water, it gets extremely hot and dry! The views to the ocean and to Palomar Mountain to the East are worth the effort.

This was our 2nd trip to potato chip rock. First time we took a longer trail at Poway recreation center. It was a very fun decent hike. We saw snakes, plants, even rabbits. My 6 year old son loved the trail. This time we took this fire road because my friend wanted to try. As others are mentioned, it's short and easy. It's just a paved steep road. I'd say if you don't have enough time and want to take a very short trip to potato chip rock, take this road.

Good straight up the mountain exercise approaching from the east side. Plus it's paved.

The Romona side was about a 40 minute steep walk, with a gorgeous view of the countryside. Enjoy!

I went on this hike to get to the famous potato chip rock. It was obviously an uphill climb 90% of the way. We went with 5 in our group and only 4 made it to the top. The views are spectacular and the picture opportunities are endless! Take plenty of water (1-2 liters) and sunscreen. And make sure your battery on your phone is charged for photos - especially once you reach potato chip!! And go in the morning on a weekday- otherwise there can be 1-2 hour waits for pictures at the top!!!!
