Torrey Pines State Reserve Tours

If you ever wondered what California might have looked like before so many people decided to call it home, Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve provides a glimpse back in time.

This wild stretch of 2,000 acres provide a living, growing picture of what San Diego looked like before it was developed. Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve is home to miles of beaches, chaparral plants, Torrey pine trees and a lagoon used by migrating seabirds. There are eight miles of trails and a Visitor Center. Free, docent led, tours are given on Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays at 10am and 2pm. They run an hour to an hour and a half in length.

There are some rules you should know before you visit. No food or drink, except water, is allowed in the Reserve above the beach. A "pack it in-pack it out" policy applies in the upper Reserve area. Dogs are not permitted, although service dogs are allowed.

Practical Info

The Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve is open 365 days a year. It is open daily at 7:15am. Closing time is approximately at sunset, which can vary greatly depending on the season. Visitor Center hours during the summer are from 9am to 6pm, while the site is open from 10am to 4pm during spring, fall and winter.
