Torrey Pines State Reserve
a wilderness island in an urban sea. This fragile 2000 acre environment is also the home of our nation's rarest pine tree - Pinus torreyana. The views combine wind bent trees, abstract sandstone formations, wildflowers, and the sea or lagoon below, all of which are constantly changing. Dramatic views are plentiful from areas of the hiking trails which parallel the bluff edge high above the sea and several viewing platforms have been built right at the bluff edge. They are excellent sites for observing the yearly migration of the Gray Whales as well as the year-round spectacle of dolphins.

From Interstate 5 South, exit on Carmel Valley Road and drive west for 1.5 miles.
From Interstate 5 North, exit on Genesee Avenue and drive west for 0.8 mile to North Torrey Pines Road. Continue north for 2.5 miles.

There are limited free parking along the highway 101.
Otherwise, you can park at the designated parking area for $10

For those of you are are interested in carpooling please post your general location and zip code.

What to bring/wear:
Plenty of water, sunscreen and most importantly yourself!!! Remember to wear comfortable clothing, leave your party dresses at night. It's going to be a little bit windy at the top, you may want to bring an extra jacket.

Always exercise your best judgment, you know yourself the best.
Wildlife (snakes, bobcats, mountain lions etc) seen in the park, be aware of your surroundings and stay alert at all times.
Stay on the trails. Walking off trail causes erosion, tramples plants and frightens animals.
The cliffs are unstable and dangerous. Children must be supervised by an adult at all times.
Smoking is only permitted at the beach.
Dogs and horses are prohibited at the reserve and on the beach.
All types of vehicles are prohibited on trails; bicycles may use only paved roads.

Look for us:
We will leave the gate (kiosk at the park entrance) and go hiking at 11am. We do start ON TIME, no matter how much traffic is on the freeways, inside the park, including if the parking lots are being used by movie crews. Allow yourself enough time for any unexpected surprises. Otherwise you get to enjoy the beautiful Torrey Pines reserve on your own or play hide and seek with the group.

See you guys there.
