 Hike to Iron Mountain - March 2007

                                                                                                         

 

Iron Mountain is located on the outskirts of Poway, off Highway 67. The loop that we did on this hike was a 5.6 mile stretch (2.8 mile one way) to Iron Mountain Peak. Make sure that you carry lots of water.
