**This is a seasonal hike from late January to mid April**
Personal Experience: I am posting this spot mainly for photographers and filmers as it is not a crazy hike, just beautiful. 🙂 After posting a photo of Metate Meadows on our Instagram and Facebook pages, a lot of people were wondering its location. I decided it is pretty enough to have its own page. This is one of those spots that you will want to visit in late winter through early spring to capture all the beauty, otherwise there is really not much to see or explore. This becomes a field of dead weeds and dirt come summer.
While you're in the area, I suggest visiting Old Poway Park which is filled with old history and even historic trains you can ride on over the weekends!
It reminds me of the field at the end of Harold and Maude when Harold is playing his banjo. So beautiful! See the film still below:
The wildflowers were just beginning to bloom when we visited in early March:
I guess this is used to measure water levels. I thought I had found some old ruins! Either or, there is a really cool spot for skateboarding out here:I have witnessed many breathtaking sunsets here:
