This trail begins with a steep hike down the sandstone cliffs that connect the Torrey Pines Gliderport with Black’s Beach. Continue north along Black’s Beach, round the path carved into the cliff face, then walk up the stairs that connect the shore to Torrey Pines. Take the trail that loops around such sights as Yucca Point, Razor Point, and Red Butte, or feel free to explore more. Once you’ve seen your fill, return the way you came. Free parking can be found in the Torrey Pines City Park lot. NOTICE: This trail runs through the clothing optional portion of Black’s Beach.

This is an easy hike with a long beach walk. Be prepared to see old male genitalia since it’s a nude beach. Also, check the tide before you go. You won’t make it past the rocks when the tide is high.
