You must take the time to hike if you are able to and if you can walk, then you are able to. Some of the most picturesque landscapes and the volunteers at the museum shop are worth a visit too. I do not recommend the...More

We went around 9am on New Year's Day in hopes it would be less crowded. It was still very crowded, and hard to find road parking. The walk up along the road is just that, but once you are at the trails the views are...More

Hiked here with a friend for a few hours and it was one of my favorite hikes ever! The trail is challenging in some areas but there are multiple routes possible. Views from various lookout points are all fantastic. Strongly recommend!

Torrey Pines is an outdoor hiking/walking destination with great cliff views and beach access. The view from the cliff edge is awesome. The stairs to the beach is a long uneven path that is steep and could be difficult for children. If you go down...More

With a 7 year old I would pay for the parking at the top of the hill. We were there on a weekday and paid $10 and then we went on a holiday and the fee went up to $20. But if you park in the free parking by the time you hike... More

I would ask the Uber to drop off nearby where you enter and pay to park. From there you can hike the trails or just go for a stroll on the beach
