This trail is seriously no joke! Do not tread this route lightly, it will test your ability physically and mentally. And don’t forget to bring lots of water!

The hike to potato chip rock is located in the city of Poway right near Poway Lake. The trail winds around the lake for about a mile before the actual trailhead starts. It’s about 3 miles to the summit from here but there is a good amount elevation gain so be prepared, it is up pretty much the entire way.

The best part of the hike was the lunch after at Phil’s Barbecue. Had the Half Rack of Baby Back Ribs that are slathered in that sweet sweet BBQ sauce. The 2 sides were cole slaw and elbow macaroni – both were fresh and delicious.
