Rancho Penasquitos

Rancho Peñasquitos is a residential community settled underneath the 1,500-foot-tall Black Mountain, north of Los Peñasquitos Canyon Preserve. A third of Rancho Peñasquitos has been left as open space, making this community of rolling hills a prime location for recreation. The area is recognized for its quiet, suburban feel, award-winning schools and hilltop views of the Pacific Ocean. Referred to by its 57,000 residents as "PQ," the community is bisected by State Route 56 and is bordered by 4S Ranch and Rancho Bernardo to the north, Carmel Mountain Ranch and Sabre Springs to the east, Mira Mesa and Scripps Ranch to the south and Black Mountain Ranch and Torrey Highlands to the west. PQ's 6,500 acres also includes three commercial centers, a skate park and several community parks.
