Carmel Mountain Ranch

Carmel Mountain Ranch sometimes goes by just Carmel Mountain or CMR. Carmel Mountain Ranch is a community that sits just south of Rancho Bernardo and east of Rancho Peñasquitos. The city of Poway lies to the west.  Interstate 15 runs along its western edge and forms a boundary with Rancho Peñasquitos. Transportation is further facilitated by the east-west Highway 56 and a public transit station.

Carmel Mountain Ranch is fortunate to be served by the stellar Poway Unified School District. Many shopping centers offer close-by conveniences for residents. Carmel Mountain Ranch Community Park and Highland Ranch Park provide safe recreational areas for families. Community activities like the annual fall festival bring residents together in order to relax and get to know one another. The local country club offers golf, a fine restaurant, and event facilities. The area is frequently referred to along with Sabre Springs, its southern neighbor, because the 2 communities share the Carmel Mountain Ranch/Sabre Springs Recreation Center. The center offers a playground and sports facilities.
