La Jolla Shores
The flat expanse of La Jolla Shores makes it ideal for strolling, picnicking, or tossing a Frisbee while enjoying the waves breaking on the beach. La Jolla Shores is also rich with marine life, which is protected by the San Diego La Jolla Ecological Reserve. People scuba dive and kayak at the south end of the beach.

From the north, take I-5 south, exiting at La Jolla Village Drive, west. Turn left at Torrey Pines Road and follow it to La Jolla Shores Drive.
From the south, take I-5 north, exiting at Ardath Road. Take a right at La Jolla Shores Drive, a left at Avenida de la Playa, and a right on Camino del Oro.
Meet at the north end of the parking lot.

We try to do this run at low tide. We run north to the bathrooms at the foot of the Torry Pines hill. We head back the same way or take a trail up to the park and run back past UCSD.
