|Torrey Pines State
Torrey Pines State Reserve is a majestic wilderness in the middle of an increasingly urban area. Its fragile environment of high, broken cliffs and deep ravines overlooking the sea is home to one of the world’s rarest pine trees—Pinus torreyana. The Torrey pines are believed to be the remnants of an ancient woodland that once flourished along the southern California coast, but now they grow naturally only on this small strip of San Diego coastline and on Santa Rosa Island. Here, the tree clings to the face of the crumbling sandstone or stands tall in sheltered canyons. The reserve features high broken cliffs and deep ravines on headlands overlooking the ocean.
