If you feel like you and your granny ring have not had much quality time together lately, then head out to Mt Woodson and get reacquainted. The Mount Woodson area is a pretty cool swath of rugged landscape located in the northeast corner of the city of Poway north of San Diego and just south of Ramona. Most of the mountain is covered with large boulders and chaparral with some some sizable trees and groves of oaks as well. You really need to get on the mountain to truly appreciate the word “large” in regards to the boulders. I have had apartments that were smaller than some of these monstrous chunks of the planet. The trails around and on Mount Woodson are often quite steep and technical enough to make this an advanced level ride.
