Hiking with the President 

Please join the HCSD President, Loreen Collins, and hiking specialist, Brad Speiss, for our first "Hike with the President."  We will be hiking the backside trail of Mt. Woodson which is 4 miles up and back with an elevation gain of 1500 feet.  To take advantage of the beautiful sunset you can see from the top, we will be hiking late afternoon into the evening.

Directions: To get to this hike you need to get to highway 67, you can get to highway 67 many ways but the easiest is to get off on Scripps Poway Parkway from the 15 and take it east until it meets the 67. Turn left and head north east towards Ramona. You will pass the trail head to Iron Mountain on your right and the end of Poway Road on your left, keep going past this point for another mile or 2, you will wind up the mountain and as you come down look towards your left ( west ) and you should see a bunch of cars parked along the road (unless its really dead that day), there is no parking lot so take a left into the fire station road, do a U-turn and go back out and park on the road. Make sure you hide any thing valuable in your car. The trail head has a sign near the Fire Station Road. 

Time:  We will meet at the trail head at 4:00 pm.  We should be finished by 6:00 pm.

What to bring:  Bring a light jacket, flashlight or headlamp as well as water. Light snacks will be provided.

Hike Difficulty:  Moderate.
