Overview

Although this park is located within San Diego's city limits, it remains one of the wildest landscapes along the Southern California coast, with miles of unspoiled beaches, chaparral, elegant Torrey Pine trees and a lagoon vital to many species of migrating birds.

Great beach, loads of parking either on the road or in the parking lot ($15 per day) Sand is fine ( but hot in the afternoon) and the ocean perfect Great waves for boarding Look carefully and you might see dolphins or seals. Washrooms good

Beautiful park with trails for all ages. The tougher trails offer the better views but totally worth it! Trails are short enough to do all in one day. There is a steep walk along the road to get to the visitor center and restrooms. You...More

We hiked up the hill from the lower parking lot. It was so hot out ... record temps so we weren’t sure how much we could cover with three complaining boys.🤗 The Guy Fleming trail was perfection! Views, cool breezes, fantastic plant life. The beach...More

Torrey Pines Reserve is an ideal hiking destination for all levels of fitness. The trails are clearly marked and beautifully maintained and the ocean views are spectacular! Convenient parking available for a fee or you can park along 101 and add a little more "workout"...More

So glad our family took a friend's recommendation to visit Torrey Pines. The sights are breathtaking. Plenty of great trails and we loved that we could walk down to the beach from the park. I would highly recommend stopping at Torrey Pines.

We stopped here one afternoon to visit the Pacific Ocean for the first time. It was a beautiful park with golden sandy beaches. The views are amazing and the trails were a lot of fun. We LOVED it here!!
