Park on Callan Rd and walk over to the fence near the north end of the Golf Course parking lot. See map above.
Join me for a brisk walk (8- 8.5miles) on the well maintained trails of Torrey Pines Reserve and the serene stretch of Black's and Torrey Pines beach set against soaring 300 ft cliffs.
We will meet at 8:25 AM (, do the introductions, and leave at 8:30 AM. If you plan on using the restroom facility in the parking area, kindly arrive early enough so that you don't hold up the rest of the hikers.
This hike has been cross posted with other groups. The hike will be on regardless of the number of attendees.
Hike details: We will hike down the Broken hill trail towards the beach, walk South along the beach (if tide level permits) past Blacks beach towards the Gliderport section and then turn around and walk North until we come up to the main access road (Torrey Pines Park Rd). Here we will stop to accommodate those who need to use the restroom facility. We will continue up on Torrey Pines Park Rd which is slightly steep, take a short detour to the Guy Fleming trail which loops back to Torrey Pines Park Rd and walk back to the parking lot.
Distance: About 8- 8.5 miles.
Approximate hiking time : About 2 1/2 to 3 hours, depending on your pace.
Note: If you want to hike at a pace faster or slower than me, you are welcome to do so and I will assume that you are familiar with the place and absolutely fine with returning on your own to the parking lot.
Note: DOGS NOT ALLOWED ON THE RESERVE/BEACH.
Meeting spot: We will meet near the fence at the North end of the Torrey Pines Golf Course parking lot. The parking lot is to the west of N. Torrey Pines Rd and at the intersection of Callan Rd and N. Torrey Pines Rd. Street side parking is available on Callan Rd.
Hiking Essentials: Water, light snack and a light jacket. Highly recommend shoes with good traction because parts of the hike will be on dirt.
Water fountain located near the restrooms and also on the Guy Fleming trail.
