Torrey Pines State Reserve - a wilderness island in an urban sea. This fragile 2000 acre environment is also the home of our nation's rarest pine tree - Pinus torreyana. The views combine wind bent trees, abstract sandstone formations, wildflowers, and the sea or lagoon below, all of which are constantly changing. Dramatic views are plentiful from areas of the hiking trails which parallel the bluff edge high above the sea and several viewing platforms have been built right at the bluff edge. They are excellent sites for observing the yearly migration of the Gray Whales as well as the year-round spectacle of dolphins.
