TORREY PINES STATE RESERVE
This spectacular Reserve gets its name from the beautiful Torrey Pines, the rare trees that grow atop the coastal bluffs overlooking miles of beach and the majestic Pacific Ocean. Over 300 other species of trees are found in this botanical paradise.
The dramatic sandstone formations and breathtaking views create a splendid hiking experience for all abilities.
The park features three distinct trails, ranging from one to three hours and from moderate to difficult. Larger groups can choose between two trails. Springtime can bring a brilliant array of wildflowers, while winter visitors may see dolphins or grey whales from the ocean overlooks. For those who wish, it is possible to descend to the beach and even explore the tide pools.
