The Preserve is surrounded by the city's best biking, hiking, and running trails. The Trails, Open Spaces and Landmarks of Los Peñasquitos Canyon Preserve, meaning little cliffs, is located in the City of San Diego between the I-5 and I-15 freeways, some twelve miles north of the City's urban center. The Preserve is composed of two large coastal canyons. When completed it will cover over 4000 acres and stretch some 7 miles. Los Peñasquitos Canyon and its tributary, Lopez Canyon, are characterized by perennial streams and steep slopes rising from flat, densely vegetated canyon bottoms. The canyons were created by stream erosion of marine sediments, which in some areas has exposed crystalline bedrock that is 300 million years old. Remains of the prehistoric culture can still be found. The scenery of the Preserve is varied, ranging from tangled riparian woodland to open grassland that rises abruptly onto brush-covered slopes. Midway down six-mile long Los Peñasquitos Canyon is a boulder-studded waterfall set against an untouched backdrop of rolling hills. Many rare plant and animal species are found in the Preserve.
Life At the Preserve
To live in a safe neighborhood, surrounded by nature, with the unobstructed views... it's unimaginable. Now we live close to the city, but have the privacy, serenity, and beauty of the country.

The Vision of The Preserve
15 years ago, while tying his horse to a Eucalyptus tree atop Del Mar Mesa to watch another sensational sunset, the vision of The Preserve at Del Mar was conceived.
