“The trail system’s hub is Lake Poway, a 60-acre reservoir with playgrounds and picnic areas. Boating and fishing are popular activities on the lake, while horseback riding, mountain biking and hiking are the favorite pastimes on shore. Lake Poway Trail circles the lake; other trails lead off it into more remote regions of the recreation area. The well-constructed path is also a fitness trail complete with exercise stations, and a nature trail with numbered stops keyed to an interpretive brochure.”
