Torrey Pines State Reserve
2,000 acres of Southern California remains today as it was before the city developed. Home to the rarest of pine trees in the country, Torrey Pines invites your travel team to experience this whimsical woodland paradise all within the city limits. Arrange a guided tour or take an adventure on your own with your eyes wide open for mule deer, bobcats, weasels and more. Rare and beautiful vegetation also grace the trails like sea figs and sugar bushes. Off the trails, your team is welcome to a seaside exploration on the beach or in the tide itself, just don’t step on any jellyfish!
Exploration of the Reserve leads you to the Historic Torrey Pines Lodge built in 1922. This Pueblo Revival style lodge was a gift from Ellen Browning Scripps. Your hike will also include a trek to the Torrey Pines cliffs and 10 trails. Some of these accesses are steeper or rockier than others, so we certainly encourage adequate hiking shoes for proper support. The most beautiful selection is identified as Guy Fleming Trail. This one is a 2/3 mile loop with panoramic views and an abundance of flora! The trail itself is a testament to the life of one Mr. Fleming who protected the trees with no badge, no uniform, and no weapon - only character.
For the convenience of your group, there are restrooms available at the beach parking lots as well as in the upper Reserve.
