During our stay at Hilton Torrey Pines as part of Innominds corporate strategy meet, we got several opportunities to explore Torrey Pines State Natural reserve during our mornings and evenings. This blog with pics and video clips gives peak into what we have witnessed during our treks and beach walks in the mornings, as Lakshmi, Rao, Varun, Neil took stroll around various beaches and Cliffs.
Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve is 2,000 acres of coastal state park located in the community of La Jolla, in San Diego, California, off North Torrey Pines Road. It is bordered immediately on the south by Torrey Pines Municipal Golf Course and on the north by the city of Del Mar. The reserve consists of a plateau with cliffs that overlook Torrey Pines State Beach, and a lagoon that is vital to migrating seabirds.
It is mentioned that, during their migration, it is sometimes possible to see several species of whale from the cliffs, including humpback whale and gray whale. The eight miles of trails within the park is known to offer an attraction for hikers and beach-goers. The Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve offers 8 trails to hikers that vary in terms of length, difficulty, and scenery. We did trek one of those trails and witnesses scenic views of Pacific Ocean. A relatively level and easy 2/3-mile loop, the trail offered multiple scenic overlooks with panoramic views.
