Need to Know

Once you climb out of the trees on the western side, the trail is more exposed. Pack plenty of water and bring sunscreen.

Description

The Green Valley Truck Trail is the primary trail in the Blue Sky Ecological Reserve. As the main trail, it climbs up to Ramona Dam and Ramona Lake where hikers will enjoy scenic views of the area. The climb is steady and, at times, steep so expect a good workout if you plan to go past the first mile of the trail. From Ramona Dam, you'll enjoy great views of Poway. From here, the trail flattens out and continues for about another mile along the northwest shore of the lake.
