    hot tip: the parking lot gets packed, esp on the weekends. park over at miramar overlook park, walk down the hill, and the trail will dump you right onto the loop

    If you're up here running, skating or biking around the lake please get out of the way of vehicles!You see a car coming get over to the far right! Do not casual stroll along! Pay attention!

    You'll probably eat at least 3 flies when you run here, but other than that, this place is great. Quarter mile markers are money.

    bring dog food to feed ducks instead of bread... not only is it recommended(per lake sign), but the ducks seem to love & go crazy over it! crazy ducks means happy kids!

    On a clear day you can see all the way to La Jolla from the dam

    Nice 'getaway' from the nearby traffic of Mira Mesa. Easy to forget you live in one of America's largest cities when here. A local jewel.

    5 miles around with ¼ mile markers makes Miramar Lake a great, scenic place to train with a buddy or alone! Walk, run, bike, or rollerblade around. Pet friendly too!

    watch out for the dog poop, bugs, and the occasional snakes.

  • Alana Y.

    When walking/jogging/running, time yourself from one distance marker to the next! If you're bringing a 4 legged friend, be sure to bring water in the Summer. Share some with pets that don't have any!

    Wear sunglasses in the evening because of bugs!

    Miramar lake is not 5 miles. If you run it counterclockwise with the view of Mira Mesa at the end continue running passed bathrooms until you pass the yellow post before the parking on the left

    I run the loop regularly and my Garmin insists it's 4.88 miles... Helpful to know if you're trying to get accurate pace times

    There are quater mile markers even though I think at least one is short. It's a great place to do speedwork.
