On December 24, 2013, I participated in a hike arranged by the "Take a Hike!" group on in the Rattlesnake Canyon area of Poway.

I had done this hike before, but the only change I noticed was that a certain stream crossing had become more difficult.

After the hike, I did a car survey of some streets in the immediate neighborhood.

The Poway area is riddled with trails, both formal and informal.

The track with embedded waypoints is plotted as captured. It could use a little editing.
