Hike Torrey Pines
Choose from several trails, all with breathtaking scenery and views at Torrey Pines State Reserve. The rarest native pine in the United States, the Torrey Pine, with its twisted, sparse limbs grows in the sandy soil throughout the reserve.
For a leisurely hike along relatively level ground surrounded by diverse plant-life, wildflowers, and ocean vistas, choose the Guy Fleming Trail, a 0.7-mile loop. Looking out to the ocean, you may see whales and bottlenose dolphins swimming by below. Combine the Broken Hill and Razor Point Trails for a three-mile loop hike with beach access.
Bring drinking water for the trails and a picnic lunch to enjoy on the beach. Join guided nature walks at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on weekends and holidays. Visit the Visitor Lodge to learn about the natural and cultural history of the reserve. www.torreypines.org.
