  2. If you’re starting from Los Peñasquitos Canyon County Preserve, it’s super simple. Just get onto Black Mountain Rd heading south and stay on that all the way to the intersection with Mira Mesa Rd a mile and a half later, then turn just after the Wells Fargo.

How Much Local History Do You Know?

Mira Mesa’s rich history dates back to the time before European settlement when it was home to the Kumeyaay peoples, primarily residing along Penasquitos Creek. Following Mexican independence, the land transitioned into part of the Rancho Santa Maria de Los Peñasquitos land grant, awarded to Francisco María Ruiz in 1823.


During World War II, the area now known as Mira Mesa served as a strategic site for the United States Army, used primarily for testing. Notably, just west of U.S. Route 395 (now Interstate 15), the Navy established an auxiliary landing field. This site, colloquially known as Hourglass Field due to the distinctive hourglass shape of its single asphalt runway, also functioned as a bombing range for the Navy.


The post-war period, especially starting in 1969, marked a significant housing boom in Mira Mesa, which rapidly extended from the I-15 freeway in the east to I-805 in the west, covering approximately 10,500 acres. This development was among the earliest examples of urban sprawl along the I-15 Corridor.


The rapid growth led to Hourglass Field’s transformation into the current site of San Diego Miramar College and Hourglass Field Community Park. However, this expansion was so swift that it initially lacked essential services like schools and shopping centers, prompting then-mayoral candidate Pete Wilson in 1971 to campaign with the slogan “No more Mira Mesas!” — a critique of San Diego’s unplanned urban sprawl.


Throughout its development, Mira Mesa has been significantly influenced by its proximity to the military facilities at NAS Miramar, once known as the northernmost boundary of “real community” within San Diego. This separation continued until the late 1990s when Mira Mesa expanded extensively to accommodate a surge in population driven by its closeness to major employment centers such as the University of California, San Diego, Marine Corps Air Station Miramar, Qualcomm, and numerous biotech and pharmaceutical companies. This growth spurred the development of several commercial and industrial centers, shaping Mira Mesa into the vibrant community it is today.
