no pines. if you're not a golfer, it wasn't worth the trip. We did find the gliderport and the aquarium on our way.

“Beautiful Views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

Take your hiking shoes and get on the trails! I love Torrey Pines, especially in the morning when sometimes you see dolphins. WARNING - there is a beach South of Torrey Pines called Blacks Beach. Sometimes there are nude men sunbathing there. If they see you coming, they will cover up, but just keep your eye on the ocean. :-)

“Beautiful scenery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

Great place to enjoy the unique trees and the costal scenery. Don't forget to take your own food as nothing available there.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

What a beautiful view of the Pacific ocean. There are lots of hiking trails ranging from easy to changeling. This is one of the most beautiful places to enjoy nature and the sea breezes and well worth the trip.
