Starting from the trail head walk east along the fields containing farm animals.  You will be walking along a fence for a bit with animals and private property on the other side.  Once you get to the first T (way point 001) intersection proceed left.  The trail will be skinny at times and will go mostly up for a while toward way point 4.  After way point 4 the uphill is mostly over.  Once you turn back west you will be walking along side a stream bed on the left (dry in the summer).  Continue west on the dirt road toward the pond where you start to walk north until you meet back  at way point 001 and then turn west toward the parking lot.

TO TRAILHEAD: Drive north on Hwy 67 from Poway Road. Ellie Lane is approximately 1/2 mile on your right. Park in the dirt lot. Trail Head is at the parking lot.
