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.

Spent the morning hiking through Torrey Pines - loved every step of the way. Drove to the top and hiked the Beach trail to the beach (taking all sorts of side-routes to the branches) and then walked along the beach back to the entrance and then up the road to the parking lot. Took a couple of hours but it... More

If you can't walk long distances up hill, then drive up the hill and park at the top - you will still have a lot of walking to do! If you do park at the top, don't miss the trail which is about 2/3 of the way up - it's well worth it. If you can't park at the top... More

Highly recommended for everyone visiting San Diego, beautiful view, beautiful trails and overall everything is greatly. Highly recommend taking the beach trail and walking down to the beach. If you park your car in the downstairs parking lot, you can hike up and then walk back alongside the beach.

The top of the mountain is so pretty because you can see the ocean. The tails were not to long, easy hike family friendly and easy to get to

If you can make it up the initial steep hill, the rest of the hike is super easy. Once you get to the top there are amazing views of La Jolla shores and overlooking the ocean. Parking can be tough if you don't want to pay the parking fee, but I always lucked out when waiting a few minutes. Definitely... More

The Parry Grove Trail, with 118 steep steps into a gorgeous loop around the reserve gives new views of the ocean, canyons, and especially of the limestone outcropping called Razor Point.

A few miles of cliff side walking trails, mostly sandy/stony, occasional scramble, terrific views along the coast - $12 to park..a lovely way to stretch the legs and get away from the city for a while.

This place has several hiking paths, breathtaking views. I love the benches on the Guy Fleming trail. You can park down by the beach and walk up for a good workout or you can park by the golf course and walk your way down.
