Place to Meet: parking lot located at the Intersection of HWY 67 & Poway Road (GPS address, close to this address: 16797 Poway Rd, Poway CA 92064).

The AIAP September hike will be at Iron Mountain-Poway. The mountain core is composed of batholithic and granodioritic rock. Some of the boulders are reddish from iron deposits and possibly from the formerly-overlying red Bedford Canyon formation. Soils on the mountain include decomposed granodiorite and iron rich soils derived from iron deposits in the fractures. Curiously enough, Iron Mountain contains some of the same endemic plants that are found on gabbro soils. 

This is a moderate hike. The trails are well marked and maintained. The views from the peak are well worth the effort. This hike is about 6.5 miles, round trip, and likely takes about 4 hours. Please bring enough water and wear hiking boots. For any questions regarding hiking please contact us at admin@aiap.org
