South Poway Trail may be accessed at the equestrian staging area located south of Metate Lane 0.25 miles west of Community Road.

There is another access point on Old Pomerado Road immediately north of Beeler Creek, 0.4 miles south of the junction of Pomerado Road and Old Pomerado Road, with parking on the east side of Old Pomerado Road immediately adjacent to South Poway Trail.

There is a parking pocket for two cars at the intersection of Golden Eye Lane and Paseo Colina. South Poway Trail is immediately west of the parking pocket and is marked by several sections of lodgepole fencing.
