One of only two places on the California coast where these gnarled, once nearly extinct specimens grow, visitors will witness more than 3000 Torrey Pines in this untamed 2000-acre reserve. You will also see cliffs, mesas, canyons, beaches and wetlands. Discover eight trails ranging from a 20-minute walk to a two-hour hike. Trail maps are available at the Visitor's Lodge, where you'll also find a modest natural history museum (complete with souvenir shop). Despite the shade, it can be hot in the summer - bring your own water. See website for maps, online resources and more. Open daily from 8 a.m.
