Hi! Is this a nice place to bring a one and a half year old? We have a jogging stroller that has all terrain wheels. Thanks!
Hi! I wanted to follow up about this post. I ended up going with my husband and daughter - it was beautiful! We lucked out with a parking spot at the top and did the Razor Point Trail then Guy Fleming. Pushing the stroller around especially backup hill after Guy Fleming was tough but well worth it! I’d recommend it for anyone with a jogging stroller, lots of sun screen, and the strength to carry a stroller up and down a couple stairs!
It depends on the child. A one and one-half year old child would appreciate the beach (there are always seagulls to befriend and waves to splash in). Not sure about the Guy Fleming Trail. Would your child enjoy a breathtaking panorama, or simply not understand what he/she was seeing? Would your child appreciate a walk that for him/her would be long (though part in stroller)? Also, try to think how you could make the GFTrail interesting to your child. The beach is a surefire success, less sure about the trail.
Thank you both! I read somewhere on a family friendly website that the Guy Fleming Trail is appropriate. I'll keep this as an option for our trip and see how we feel when we get to California!
I respectfully disagree with the above poster. I’ve been going to Torrey Pines for many years. I used to bring my son when he was just three weeks old and my daughter was two. I think it’s 100 percent age appropriate.
There is a large hill getting to the trails but you can push the stroller up it or you can grab a parking spot up on the top. Great arm workout :). The Guy Fleming trail is a nice walking trail that your child can walk around in or be pushed in the stroller. Read the review on Alltrails.
It can be very hot and dusty and a small child will not enjoy the crowd or appreciate the view. Long long uphill walk unless you take a car to the top to the visitor station. I would rather enjoy the beach there not the hiking trails with a small child.
