Featuring endless trails, beautiful views, and the beloved Torrey Pine trees, this stop is not be missed by any nature enthusiast passing through the area. Parking is pretty expensive, but if you don't mind walking there are a good number of free parking options not too far of a walk away.

If you enjoy nature, hiking, beach, etc., you'd love this place. The hiking trials are actually not difficult, unless you park the car at the bottom of the hill and hike up. The view of the ocean is just spectacular. There is a place to see tide pool as well.

The Reserve itself is very spectacular. Walking the beach and catching the incoming waves as they hit the shore is a very relaxing and rewarding experience.

I hiked Torrey Pines State Park with my wife and four children (ranging from 20 to 10-years old). The first part of the trail went verticle very quickly, but was easy to walk. Tall trees provided refreshing shade. The second part of the trail took us along high cliffs that overlooked the beach and provided fantastic views of the Pacific Ocean. The last part of the hike zigzagged down to the sandy shore. We stayed and played on the beach for a while before walking along the surf, back to the car. We all agreed that it was fun to be in such a beautiful place.

Its got something for all age groups and all fitness levels. Beach trail is the best with it ending on the beach and has got a mesmerizing view all along.
