Field of View: Torrey Pines State National Reserve

If you’re looking for an easy hike with a mixture of vistas, Torrey Pines State National Reserve is a cheap and spectacular option. Arrive early (about 6:30 a.m., no later than 7 a.m.) and there is free public parking available along the main road outside of the Reserve parking lot; otherwise it’s $15. I recommend a jacket because it starts off chilly.

One of the most beautiful parts about this early morning adventure is watching the sun rise and wash over the land. Sound cheesy? It’s really inspiring.

The Reserve is located at 12600 North Torrey Pines Rd.

Beautiful pictures, Annie. Only one caution: Be careful of the rattlesnakes that seem to come out about this time and sun themselves right off the paths. Two seen in one day.

Oh, good point! We should go hiking one morning. Are you game for getting up a few minutes before the crack of dawn?

Sure, as long as I have breakfast for my students I can go. Am up at the crack of dawn anyway. Let me know when.
