“Mountain trek”

Great hike up the mountain trail. Once you get to the top, the view is breathtaking. You feel like you could touch the sky. It is so beautiful. Not to mention the great exercise. Loved loved loved it.

“Torrey Pines”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Loved the scenery and the hiking trails. It was very hot the day we went and we weren't prepared as we should have been with water etc. Haas a little museum that's fun and the people working there are happy to tell you where to go. :)

“Beautiful Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

We hiked from the parking lot to the beach. I highly recommend it for anyone in decent physical condition. Substantial elevation change down to the beach and then a reasonably difficult hike back up.

“Ideal Place for Hiking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

The reserve is a great place to hike, because of the established trails, and the spectacular view of the sea. The cool San Diego climate makes it an ideal place to have a leisurely walk or a jog, passing through several plant species including the Torrey pines. A sidetrip to the golf course, where Tiger Woods claimed several victories, is another added attraction.

“Awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Commanding views from the bluffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean, the opportunity to see seal and cormorant colonies close up and a beautiful coastal drive make Torrey Pines State Reserve a must on any vacation!
