Hike Mount Woodson “Potato Chip Rock”

Want to stand on a Potato Chip? There might be a line, however it will be worth the wait to capture your insta-moment on this razor-sharp flake of rock overlooking Lake Poway and coastal San Diego. Join AIGA San Diego as we hike up Mount Woodson Trail for a 6.6 mile/3-hour moderately strenuous round trip.

FREE to all members, and non members.

Let's navigate through a fun maze of giant granite boulders and dare to stand together on the famous Potato Chip Rock to capture an insta-moment to share.

Mount Woodson gains 2,000 feet in about 3.3 miles, which is a considerable amount of elevation for such a short distance, so it will be a heart-pounding challenge. But we will take our time, we won't leave anybody behind, and we'll enjoy the view with a tasty granola bar after we've made it to the top. After all, this is about enjoying the outdoors, having a good conversation, and connecting with fellow creatives.
