Great trail for all ages and abilities. Plan on checking tide levels if you’re looking to take the beach trail back to the parking lot. High tide hit around noon.

A very nice trail for a warmer day, as most of the trail is in the shade and much of it is parallel to a stream.

The ocean is my only medication!

Nice easy trail with good views of the back bay. Lots of birds to see. Trail is well maintained, but mostly loose dirt. Definitely wear close-toed shoes.

nice easy hike. At the end of the hike there's huge rocks and boulders you can navigate through to take in the beautiful views that stonewall peak has to offer.

Easy Hike and Beautiful Views!

Great layout but the dry climate over the past few years has forced all of this once beautiful flowered reserve into hibernation. A few cactus blooms were evident but the rest of the coastal vegetation is mostly dry green or dead brown. The long beach strut concludes at a climbable rock formation extending into the sea, the hill climb up is a good short walk with some new erosion barriers and steps, and the ocean views get better and better at each level. Torrey Pines despite the current sad hiatus of beautiful plant growth remains one of America and California’s most stunning sites.

So beautiful. Well worth it. It was our first hike we’ve ever done in San Diego. We hiked with our 10 month old in a hiking carrier and there were only a couple spots my husband needed help. Loved it.

Amazing. Couldn't believe it but I saw a bald eagle near the edge of the lake then it flew away.

Close to UCSD and beautiful!

Very easy trial. Small incline at the beginning-maybe a tenth of a mile and that’s about it. Lots of switchbacks and the views all the way to the top were amazing. Loved the stairs leading to the summit. However huge infestation of termites at the summit. So definitely didn’t hang out at the summit for too long. They flew and landed all over my friend. The views at the summit are definitely worth it. It was beautiful. We went early enough we didn’t see any snakes at all but we were definitely definitely wary and watching out for them. Definitely do this hike. You won’t be disappointed.

Fun trail for anyone any day.

Fun hike for anyone any age

Easy hike, good for after work, which is exactly what we did.

Gets fairly busy, head up early

Very peaceful. Easy walk. Saw a quail, lots of bunnies and birds.

Great little hike. Plenty of shade in the am hours. At the peak monument there is a huge infestation of termites, pretty gross!

Good hike with nice views. Plenty of shade throughout the trail to help with the hot days...

Beautiful...

Hiked 6/18/18 on a Monday. It was a nice hike to Lake Ramona. Beginning shaded and flat. When you reach the end of the tree line is the last of the shade and you will also start hiking on a gradual incline. It does get steeper towards the top. When you hit the asphalt the incline is more challenging. There are nice views along the way and at the top but what we all didn't care for was the water station, the power lines, the electric station, and the guard rail at the top. I understand they are necessary, it just took away from the beauty of nature. Bring your water and sunscreen. parking not a problem and easy to find.

Nice trail for skill levels. Pretty green and pleasant. Trail could be marked better.

The trail is nice enough but there is dog crap all over the trails and I would guess off trail too. I was there first week June 2018 and was lucky to see a mature and healthy looking bobcat!!

Trail head is non existent, the best part was on the south side of the tracks which was hard to find. I only found it after a biker showed me where it was but construction there limits truly enjoying all of it. The best part is off of Gennesee south side of tracks otherwise you may end up on the north side and miss it due to the tracks. Plenty of wild flowers even white poppies?

This is in a national park and you have to pay to get in. I wish I would have read this before driving out here without money on me. Maybe another day.

Highways for days

Beautiful and if you get there early with less people, even better!

Loved this hike! It turned into an out and back due to high surf, there was no way to walk along the beach. Views were amazing even with overcast skies. Beautiful place to see the sunset!

it was fun!

Great hike. Loved it. Good parking.
