    There is a 5 mile trail/paved road, fishing and boat rentals. It only has one drinking fountain at the start. Sometimes it gets crowded on weekend afternoons.

    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!

    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!

    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!

    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

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