I don’t really have a lot to say about Torrey Pines, other than that it’s absolutely gorgeous and I wish I could have spent more time there. I packed every single day I was in San Diego full, and I don’t regret one missed second of sleep. So, in order to cut my rambles short, I leave you with some handy information for hiking Torrey Pines and a few of my favorite photos.
Tips first, because I’m saving the best for last!
1. You can hike in plain ol’ tennis shoes (although I’d recommend some with a little traction). Aside from one steep path that heads down to the beach, the terrain is fairly flat and smooth.
2. You can park by the beach or near the ranger station.
3. Pack water because there is no place to buy any on the trails. You can’t take food on the trails either, so fill up before you head out. None of the trails are much more than 1 mile, so you should be fine.
4. Take a camera!!! These coastal cliffs are to die for. You don’t even need to be good at taking pictures to get some beautiful shots here.
I have no idea why California apartments rent for more than double those in Texas… 😉
Have you ever been to Torrey Pines?
