Description

Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve is a wilderness oasis in a largely urban area and home to our nation's rarest pine tree - Pinus torreyana. The reserve is also a salt marsh that houses many water birds, and as such is a very unique and sensitive Southern California ecosystem that is well worth a visit for the great views alone. Some of California's most beloved plants and animals rely on this reserve. The reserve features miles of hiking trails, ocean views and beaches, and tons of wildlife viewing opportunities. The visitor center houses interpretive nature exhibits that are educational and interesting for kids and adults alike. The reserve is a day-use park only. There is no overnight camping or any picnicking allowed.Torrey Pines does not allow dogs anywhere within the reserve and beach boundaries (even within your car). These rules help protect the ecosystem, please respect them.
