"Go to Torrey Pines State..." La Jolla Tip by mlewis234

La Jolla, San Diego: 13 reviews and 10 photos


Favorite thing: Go to Torrey Pines State Beach. Hike to the top of Torrey Pines State Park to build your calf muscles. The view from the top is amazing, especially on a clear day. At the top you will find hiking trails that wind through the reserve among the Torrey Pine, (one of the rarest varieties of pine in the United States), wild flowers and other plants and animals. Bring your bathing suit and a surfboard and hit the waves!

Torrey Pines State Beach is located at North Torrey Pines Road. Take the Carmel Valley Road exit off of I-5 heading north from San Diego. Park for free along 101 to the north and then walk south onto the beach. Or pay a small fee and park high above the beach on the cliffs to enjoy the hike down to the sparkling Pacific Ocean
