Hike Torrey Pines
Imagine! A beautiful, wild stretch of land nestled in the midst of a big city. That’s the Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve, 2,000 acres of land that looks much the same as it did when the first settlers appeared in the 1600s. Filled with lovely native plants like the chaparral and pine trees, Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve also includes miles of unspoiled beaches and a lagoon. There are 8 miles of trails, ranging from easy hikes that even children can take to challenging workouts for those with hiking experience. There’s also a visitor center where you can learn more about the history of the area. On weekends, you can enjoy guided nature walks.
