As a locall who lives in La Jolla, I take out of town visitors here often as it is a wonderful area to enjoy the ocean, trails of all levels of ability and nature at its' best. A favorite to go alone or with a friend to enjoy walking and heading to Del Mar or La Jolla for lunch after. In particular, I enjoy the Beach Trail down---and walking back up. The museum is currently closed as are the rest rooms, but, port-a-potties are available. A majority park by the ocean for free, and walk up the road to the trails--then back along the shore to their cars. I was disdappointed to see in January, 2021, with our ICU units full, that approximately 50% of visitors were ignoring the mask mandate. Signs are posted clearly to please adhere to the current guidelines for 'others' safety. Bring water, a sun hat and good trail shoes.

The upper lot is currently closed. All the trails are closed for 24 hours after it rains so we couldn’t go out on them. No one old us that. Nice views

My family and I are always looking for hiking places. Torrey pines was an amazing place to do it. The views of the ocean are beautiful and you breath pure clean air. Highly recommend it!

Well worth your time. Beautiful views of the landscape and ocean. We had heard that the parking lots can fill up early. We visited during the week. Got to the parking lot around 10am and saw many available parking spots. However we decided to drive up the road and park in the lot near their visitor center (which wasn't open due to the virus). Be prepared if you decide to hike in the area. Even in September the sun was hot. Take water, dress accordingly, wear appropriate footwear. After exploring many of the trails we drove back down to the lower parking lot. Ate lunch on the beach. We appreciate all the folks who made certain this Torrey Pines area was saved from development. It is one of a kind.

We enjoyed hiking Torrey Pines. While it was easy on the way down to the beach, back up was tiring. There are a couple of benches along the way to rest. Very beautiful coast.
