I found Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve to be a great place to see stunning views and have a good hike. The weather was perfect on an April afternoon and cacti were blooming along with other spring flowers. Many cars were parked at the lot down below at the entrance but we drove to the top and walked down to the various overlooks with the great ocean views which seemed like a better option because that is where the trails start. I wouldn't recommend most of these trails for small children, as they tend to be rather steep.

Small, but nice nature center.
Nice trails and amazing cliff views! Even if you don't have much time - don't skip on that! It worth it!

My wife and I visited the park for 4 hours, we hiked down to the beach and up again. It was a great experience and something good to do. Take water.

Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve is a gem. It's a beautiful hiking experience with the added bonus of awe-inspiring ocean views of the Pacific. There is even a beach below to relax at after a good hike, too. Several trails provide easy to moderate hiking. There's a small visitor center and museum shop at the north end.

Park for free along the water (although parking is very difficult to come by, especially on weekends any time of day) or in the lots for whatever the state parks fee is at the moment. Currently, rates are $10-20 per day depending on the day of the week (the highest prices are for weekends and holidays). State Park annual passes are just under $200, but they are good at all California State Parks. If you already have one, park for free at Torrey Pines. If not, you can buy one at the South Beach station at Torrey Pines from 8:30 a.m. until 5 p.m. daily.

The park is open 7:15 a.m. to sunset every day of the year. Guided nature walks are available.

Went on the Razor Edge Trail and Beach Trail. Both were amazing! The views were stunning and the hiking was easy to moderate.
