Hello everyone! This is a friendly reminder that any of these fun places we may visit, we are a guest at. Please treat both businesses and trails with the utmost respect. We here at Hidden San Diego follow the 'Leave no Trace' mantra, meaning whatever you bring with you comes back with you. If you see trash on a trail, please do your part to help remove it. Remember, we are not picking up trash from another person but instead cleaning up for Mother Nature. Happy adventures!

Personal Experience: This page will be a work in progress as we discover more back-trails/horse trails to add to the list. Poway is filled with horse trails as an alternative to walking the sidewalks along the busy roads or even residential neighborhoods.

We've found some really pretty horse 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 4 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!

While you're in the area, make sure to visit Metate Meadows nearby!

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

The 4th trail is actually a series of trails known as the Del Poniente Trails. There are multiple trails and trailheads.  Here are a few:

32.98928229803277, -117.03205529280685

33.00157872716592, -117.03244122551925
