Todays hike is a little wilderness and a little suburban. You will have your choice of two options: the shorter version will be about 6 miles with some elevation gain at the start and then go towards the McMansion housing area in Poway and return. The second option is: we will start with the other group and go up the hill but then take the trail going down to the washed out bridge, return and then head towards the McMansion housing area on a combination of trails and streets, about 9 + miles. Both hikes start at 9:00 AM. Plan to bring water, snack, lunch if you are doing the long version. Directions: Take I 15 to the Pomerado/West Bernardo exit in Escondido. Go east to the stop light for Highland Valley Rd and turn left. Go about 2.3 miles on Highland Valley Rd and the trailhead is on the right. 8:00 AM Mission Valley car pool if there is one
