Torrey Pines State Park

Torrey Pines State Park

On the north of La Jolla, there is Torrey Pines State Park. One the rarest place in California that kept its wild aspect. There is a lot of things to see around, so here is a little route to follow.

To walk on the campus of UCSD

Around the park, there is the campus of the famous University of California San Diego. It’s a must-do for every student that goes to the US. This mini-city is so vast and its community spirit is so strong, it’s gonna make you dream !

Torrey Pines Gliderport

Before to go to the park, enjoy a stop to the Torrey Pine Glider-port, the cliff from where a lot of gliders take their flight. A beautiful show that is almost gonna give you vertigo.

Black’s Beach

Going down the cliff, next to the glider-port, a dark sandy beach is revealing… You have to know that it’s one of the rarest naturist beach of San Diego !

Torrey Pines State Reserve

Don’t make the same mistake than me, don’t forget your tracksuit and go hike on the height of the natural reserve. The view is worth the pain ! Take a map of the reserve because the place is wild and you can’t find much information on the walk even if the path is clearly defined. But it’s also really nice to get lost and discover by surprise wonderful hidden spots ! Some point of view are amazing. There the scene is not occupied by palm trees but pines that overlook the cliffs. Once the hike is finished, go down on the beach to go back to your starting point and walk along the Torrey Pines Beach, natural and wild !
