We visited here recently as part of our trip to San Diego. The sky was clear and the weather was perfect for this.

This state park has many hiking trails through the Torrey Pines and overlooking the ocean. You can easily spend a day here between the hiking trails and beaches.

Torrey Pines State Reserve is a wonderful place to visit. Especially for sunrise or sunset. There is plenty of parking for free off the road, or you can pay in the parking lot. A few different trails to meander at the top of the ridge....More

The trails and beach make a lovely (and serene if you go during business hours) place to walk. I've been there many times, and I always enjoy walking there and listening to the waves.

The park is beautiful and worth the quick trip from San Diego. The hiking trails are short and pretty easy so you can have nice stroll and look at the natural beauty and views without over doing it.

If you successfully hike up Torrey Pines then no need to visit your cardiologist as it is quite the workout. Once on top there are several different trails you can explore with all offering great photo opportunities.

I would ask the Uber to drop off nearby where you enter and pay to park. From there you can hike the trails or just go for a stroll on the beach

I think it’s 10-15$ to get a car into the state park. No fee to picnic. That being said it’s not much of an easy walk to the beach with picnic gear. The park is up high altitude wise where you walk down to the beach. I... More
