This hike combines Red Butte, the Yucca Point Trail, and the Razor Point Trail. You will see lots of wildlife, plants, and of course the wonderful and rare Torrey Pines. Enjoy the breeze, smell the flowers, and plan to spend at least half a day here.

absolutely love this trail system. foot traffic can be heavy at times. easy walks along the cliffs of torrey pines. you can't beat the views from the top. always a good breeze. end your hike with following the trail down to the beach for a nice walk along the ocean back to your car. $12 to park which I'm not a fan.

Awesome hike in the Pines on a bluff right above the ocean. Took the dog and we really had a good time.

Fell in love with this place today. Very easy to find. One thing you need to know is the website says it's $10 for parking but that's for winter time when the temperature drops. right now, and for the summer, it's $12.50. But you can park right at the bottom by the beach, or follow the road up to the top to the ranger station/parking lot. From there we walked down to the Guy Flemming trail, which is all flat with slight incline, amazing coastal views, loads of Torrey pines. The next trail up is the Parry Groves, keep in mind you have to go down 118 stone steps to start the trail which loops right back around back to the steps to go back up. There are a 3-4 more trails but we were too tired. The ranger station is fascinating and educational with their taxidermy animals. We ended the day walking along the beach.
