Personal Experience: This page will be a work in progress as we discover more back-trails to add to the list. Poway is filled with back trails and horse trails as an alternative to walking the sidewalks along the busy roads or even residential neighborhoods. We’ve found some really pretty trails during our explorations that I’d like to share with you Powegians or even those who’d like to explore this town more. So far we have 3 back-trails/horse trails to share! I do not know any official names of these trails so if anyone wants to help out it would be greatly appreciated!
This first trail is off of Midland rd. It will spit you off onto Twin Peaks rd. There are some off-shoot trails here that take you into some pretty magical fields! Trailhead: 32.974722, -117.036090
This second trail we use to take as kids all the time. It starts on Pomerado rd, temporarily takes you through a neighborhood uphill then into the hills for a great view! Trailhead: 33.001310, -117.058029. You then walk up Pedriza dr. all the way up hill until you find the new trailhead: 33.002093, -117.054456Remember, you start off on a dirt path, then go through a neighborhood then continue up the mountain.
The third trail we have found starts on Community rd. and takes you to Community Park. If you have a dog, this is a great walk because there is also a dog park in Community Park! Trailhead: 32.953792, -117.041289
