Tour description provided by Viator

Join your professional guide for a hike through Torrey Pines State Reserve, a wilderness oasis in a largely urban setting, just north of San Diego. On this tour, you’ll enjoy scenic views of the gorgeous California coastline while discovering the flora and fauna native to this area.

Enjoy the best of this beautiful California state reserve on this fun-filled guided hiking tour. Torrey Pines State Reserve is home to the rarest pine tree in the US – Pinus torreyana – as well as other species of flora that your guide will highlight. See dramatic shelves cut into the terrain by the ocean millions of years ago; enjoy the beauty of the forest; take in amazing ocean views; and admire the flowers, which bloom year-round thanks to San Diego’s mild climate.

Depending on the season, you may see gray whales from viewing platforms along the trail, as well as dolphins. While wildlife sightings are not guaranteed, whales and dolphins usually make an appearance and your guide will be sure to point them out.
