The Lake Miramar Trail is a 4.9 mile urban oasis in San Diego, great for all skill levels with scenic lake views.

The Lake Miramar Trail allows dogs on leash. This is a great location for trail runners looking to do some training or for parents with younger children. 

This trail is accessible year-round, but is best used in the mornings or late evenings during hot summer months. There is very little shade along the trail so bring extra water and sun protection.
