Well worth your time. Beautiful views of the landscape and ocean. We had heard that the parking lots can fill up early. We visited during the week. Got to the parking lot around 10am and saw many available parking spots. However we decided to drive up the road and park in the lot near their visitor center (which wasn't open due to the virus). Be prepared if you decide to hike in the area. Even in September the sun was hot. Take water, dress accordingly, wear appropriate footwear. After exploring many of the trails we drove back down to the lower parking lot. Ate lunch on the beach. We appreciate all the folks who made certain this Torrey Pines area was saved from development. It is one of a kind.

We enjoyed hiking Torrey Pines. While it was easy on the way down to the beach, back up was tiring. There are a couple of benches along the way to rest. Very beautiful coast.

Easy hike - the entire family could enjoy! Lots of people out walking, but most had masks. Free parking is available, but you can also pay $20 for the closest lot.

If you love walking the beach and cliff walks, this is for you. We weren't so lucky to find free parking, but our ticket did give us access to drive up the big hill to the other part of the park. They have nice clean washrooms here, which is a real plus.

Great waves, sand, rock collecting. Clean. Because of CoVid the parking lot is closed but clean well maintained port-a-potties very handy. There is parking along the road but get there really early to get a space. We got there at 7am
