Had a very nice time walking around the reserve, not really a hike although there are a fair number of steps down to the beach. I was concerned about parking, which I have found to be tough around San Diego. At 10am on a Saturday there was no free public parking on the main road, and a few spaces in the reserve parking lots, which were obviously paid for in the entrance fee. However, by the time we left around 2pm many people had left already and there was plenty of parking available inside the reserve. So advice is - go in the afternoon and there should be room available.

Every site seems to rate Torrey Pines as a must see location. It was fine but in reality I enjoyed walking along the beaches and cliffs in LaJolla much more.

If you're in the area and like hiking, check this place out. The trails aren't super strenuous, but there are a lot of hills and stairs so it can get tiring. You can park near the bottom or drive up the hill and park at the top. Grab a trail map and explore all of the off-shoot trails. Stop to look at the wildlife and soak in incredible ocean views. I loved this hike!

We parked near the Gliderport and enjoyed an hour or so of the beautiful scenery and watching the gliders taking off and landing. Highly recommended if you have some time!

You're see the unique California coastline scenery first handed in this reserve. It's among the top 3 places I have to take my friends to when they visit San Diego. Lots of locals come over the weekend as well.
