Torrey Pines State Reserve

Easy Dayhike (5 miles, less than 500 feet elevation change)
Sierra Club Rating: E5A (more info under Pages tab).

Limit 12 hikers.

Join us for a morning meandering through the trails of Torrey Pines Natural Reserve, where we will explore the flora and take in the views from various points within this beautiful coastal state park. We'll start from the South Beach parking lot and venture up the road to explore several trails, taking in sweeping ocean vistas along the way. We will also discuss the significance of the Torrey Pine, the rarest pine tree in the country.

Meet at 8:45am (so we can start at 9) at the restrooms within the South Beach pay parking lot at the base of the Reserve. Arrive early to find free parking along the beach, or pay $15 to park in the South Beach lot. Plan on 2.5-3 hours total; we will hike at a moderate/conversational pace. Bring sun protection, 1 liter of water (there are places to fill up your water bottle along the trail), a snack and 10 essentials. No dogs allowed in the Reserve.

Sign-In and Waiver required at trailhead and is posted for review under “more” “files. We practice Leave No Trace trail principles and have a Stay Together Policy, which is available for review on the Pages tab.

    Hi everyone -- thanks to everyone who updated their RSVPs today. This hike is officially full so unless I've reached out to you on the waitlist, there won't be any more people added. For those of you who are attending, please arrive by 8:45am and meet at the restrooms within the South Beach pay parking lot. You'll need to sign the Sierra Club liability waiver and we'll have brief announcements/introductions before we begin the hike. Also, note that food is actually not permitted within the Reserve so if you bring a snack, plan to have it just before we begin. It looks like we'll have a beautiful day tomorrow so it should be a great day for a hike -- see you all in the morning!

    Just a reminder to please update your RSVP if you can no longer make this hike -- those on the (very long) waitlist would be grateful for it! I'll send a final note tomorrow evening. Thank you!
