Torrey Pines State Preserve

Torrey Pines State Preserve

Located at the Northwest end of San Diego, within

the city limits, Torrey Pines offers you over 2000

wild and natural acres. Along with the trees of

Torrey Pines, there’s a visitor center, miles and

miles of trails, miles of beaches, and a lagoon

that’s a vital area for seabirds.

The State Preserve of Torrey Pines not only preserves

the trees but the salt marshes and waterfowl refuges

as well. The Torrey Pines State Beach here stretches

nearly four miles, from Del Mar to the sandstone

cliffs of Torrey Pines Mesa.

Also found here is Blacks Beach, located at the

base of the 300 foot cliffs. The cliffs here offer

paragliding, remote control gliding, and even hang

gliding. At the north end of Blacks Beach, clothing

is optional. To be on the safe side, always read the

signs and follow the rules of the beach.

With plenty to offer, Torrey Pines State Preserve is

a great addition to the already vast area of San

Diego. You can visit here from San Diego, as it’s

a short drive away. Torrey Pines has great beaches

and plenty of trails for you to see. As a family

trip, Torrey Pines is a great place to spend the

afternoon on your once in a lifetime vacation.
