Monthly hike: Iron Mountain in Poway

Sunday, May 18th, 2014 at 7:30am - 10:30am

Location: Iron Mountain in Poway

This event is in the past.

AIAP May Hike will be at Iron Mountain-Poway on May 18, 2014. The mountain core is composed of batholithic, 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 is likely to take about 3 hours. Please bring water and hiking boots. For any questions regarding hiking please contact us at hike@aiap.org
