The Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve is one of the wildest stretches of land on the Southern California coast. 1,500 acres of land are as they were before San Diego was developed — including the maritime chaparral, the rare Torrey pine, miles of unspoiled beaches, and a lagoon that is vital to migrating seabirds. One can imagine what California must have looked like to the early settlers, or to the Spanish explorers, or even to the first California residents here, the Kumeyaay people.

(Note that since the road to the top of the park is currently undergoing maintenance that we will park in the lower lot, walk up the road, then down one of the many trails to the beach, then walk from the beach before walking along the beach back to the lower parking lot.)
