Mount Woodson, popularly known as "Potato Chip Rock," affords one of the best views in the entire county, and is a five-star photo opportunity that should be on every San Diegan's bucket list! November is a beautiful time of year for this hike since it is not nearly as hot as the summer months. Nevertheless, please bring plenty of water, a shaded hat, sunscreen, and snacks.

Note that this is a strenuous four-mile hike (each way) with significant elevation gain. It takes three hours to get to the summit but only one hour to return. Not for beginners.

(I set the start time for 8:00 am but recommend starting earlier because the line for photos at the top can get backed up. Let's discuss as a group in the comments section.)
