Tooth Rock

UPDATE: This peak and trail are now closed to the public.

As you head east along Poway Road, you might notice a solitary rock perched atop a small hill to the north. This is locally known as Tooth Rock. It is a short hike to the summit. The trailhead is on Range Park Road. I convinced my wife to join me on this adventure. The trail starts off fairly flat before climbing steeply to the summit.

Once at the summit, you are rewarded with a nice view of Poway.


I am an avid peak bagger, sometimes backpacker, and former sea-kayaker living in San Diego. In 2019, I became the third person to complete the San Diego 100 Peak Challenge. Not stopping with that accomplishment, I set my sights on the harder San Diego Sierra Club 100 Peak list, which I completed in 2021. In addition, I have conquered several Six-Pack of Peaks challenges (SoCal, San Diego, and Arizona-Winter). Beyond attempting the San Diego Sierra Club 100 Peak list a second time, I am looking forward to exploring new summits and new adventures across the southwest.
