Trail of the Month: Lake Miramar


Published:

Great for
Running, Biking

Difficulty Level
Easy to moderate

Distance
5 miles for the full loop

Where

Park in the lot off Scripps Lake Drive near I-15. Follow the paved path from the parking lot around the lake, or do an out-and-back for a shorter distance. There are markers every quarter-mile.

Why We Love It

This path is flat, car-free, and follows a perfect 5-mile loop that hugs the lake the entire way. As you cross the dam on the western side of the lake, you’re treated to a picturesque view of La Jolla.

Where to Refuel Afterwards

C’s Ice Cream & Deli (9969 Mira Mesa Boulevard) has more than 10 kinds of root beer. If that’s not enough of a reason for you to go, they also offer delicious sandwiches, salads, ice cream, and other snacks.
