Iron Mountain is a delightful hike except during the hotter months. There are two trailheads located ~1 mile apart. The hike from the Highway 67 Staging Area, just south of the intersection with Poway Road, is shorter and is a direct path to the peak. The hike from the Ellie Lane Staging Area, one mile north along Highway 67, is a bit longer, but more scenic and most of it is a loop hike.
