Peak Name: Twin Peaks
Distance: 2.4 miles
Date: May 14, 2017
Summit: 1,305 feet
This is a great hike to save for the summer for a quick after-work summit. That is what I did. I had done this peak a few years previously after finding it in Afoot and Afield but decided to formally do it again. This peak is just south and east of the Target in Poway, so it was immediately recognizable to me. The trailhead is next to Silverset Park.
The trail works its way up to the summit with no real issues. It is a nice reminder of all the ‘hidden’ hikes and peaks that are tucked away in town.
From the summit, you have some nice views of Poway and beyond. I opted to continue the loop, and head down the backside of the mountain. This route is a touch steeper and I am glad I had my hiking poles.
