Scripps Ranch is a community in the northeastern part of San Diego. The city is named after E.W. Scripps, the original owner of 400 acres that was later expanded to 1,200 acres located just east of Interstate 15 and south of Poway. Scripps Ranch residents enjoy boating and fishing at Miramar Reservoir. The community is well known in Southern California for its beautiful eucalyptus trees, particularly along Pomerado Road.
The combination of walk-able neighborhoods, favorable weather and beautiful scenery, attracts both residents and visitors to activities such as cycling and boating in Scripps Ranch. Scripps Ranch is generally regarded as a safe community, but accidents inevitably do occur. Many of the young people in the community enjoy skateboarding and other activities.
State laws and local ordinances require all persons under the age of 18 to wear a helmet if they are riding on a bicycle, skateboard, motorcycle, scooter or roller skates while riding on all public roads, paths and sidewalks. The helmet must meet the required standards of the American Society for Testing and Materials or the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission.
