Scripps Ranch is a community of San Diego in the northeastern part of the city. It is located north of Miramar Marine Corp Air Station and east of Interstate 15. San Diego is known for its rolling terrain with many canyons affording homeowners views. Scripps Ranch is no exception and is known for its abundance of eucalyptus trees. Located in the heart of Scripps Ranch is Lake Miramar. Picnic tables, barbeques, and passive boating (fishing, row boats, paddle boats) are available, but the main attraction continues to be the five mile trail around the lake, popular with joggers, bikers, rollerbladers and other outdoor enthusiasts. The community boasts numerous neighborhood and community parks, a Community Recreation Center, a local farmer’s market and the annual 4th of July parade which is always a crowd pleaser. Scripps Ranch schools are among the top in the San Diego Unified School District and the county which make it a sought after community for families.
