There’s a trail for everyone in San Diego, from the picturesque walking paths of Torrey Pines State Reserve to the plunging hills of Three Sisters Falls. Lace up those hiking boots and pack some extra trail mix for the ten best hikes in San Diego.
Torrey Pines State Park
The Razor Point trail (1.3 miles) or Guy Fleming Trail (0.7 miles) both offer dramatic, picturesque views of the big blue with easy trails accessible to almost anyone. In the winter, you might spot Gray Whales or bottlenose dolphins throughout the year. There’s also a Beach Trail (1.7 miles), which is a bit steeper and allows access to the beach.
Length: 1-2 miles, depending on trail // Difficulty: Easy
Getting there: Take Hwy 5 to Carmel Valley Road, go west to Camino Del Mar and go south about one mile to the reserve entrance at the foot of the hill.
