You'll be surprised by this close-to-the-city reservoir surrounded by a paved road on level ground. The road makes lots of corners and turns as it follows the willows-tails and grasses at the reservoir's edge. The reservoir itself is formed by dam you can walk over...More

Walking this 5 mile walk that offers multiple and continuously changing perspectives of habitat natural to the Southern California Pacific coast is a pleasure. Gentle slopes combine with the indentations where reeds and other local fauna thrive. You can also rent a boat to row...More

I live close to the lake, so I try to take my dog down for a long walk most days. You have the choice of walking on the sandy path or on the paved path, on hot days the paved path can get very hot,...More

We went here because someone recommended it to us, but it was not what I expected. We started walking in the afternoon and came back when it was dark. The paved trail is very long and I do not recommend that you try to walk...More

Easy to find, plenty of free parking. Nice flat paved road for walking all the twists and turns around the reservoir. I walked it in slightly over an hour so I wouldn't say it was challenging, but you could certainly make it a challenge by...More

The lake and the surrounding hills offers a nice scenery for some outdoor exercise, but it's not a nature hike. Apart from some ducks in the lake we saw no animals. Bring soft trainers and not hiking boots as the trail is paved and thus...More

I was in the area and remembered seeing a TA review talking about “pleasant walk around the lake, birds & wildlife” so I decided to try it. Yes, you may like it if you like dull, paved road of 5 miles. Or if your idea...More

The walk around the Miramar lake and reservoir is a fun activity and covers a distance of about 5 miles. The best part of it is the bird watching. I just spotted about hundreds of ducks in a glance. There is a bridge that takes...More
