Torrey Pines State Beach
The CA Conservation Corp (CCC) crew managed to get most of the worst erosion emergency repaired. Beach access from the Reserve is restored using the repaired sections and some detours onto Razor Point trail. The CCC crew will return on 3/15 to complete the emergency repairs and we hope to fully reopen the Beach Trail by 3/18 (All beach trails closed until then). Once Beach Trail is fully reopened the CCC crew will return to their work on the Broken Hill trail and planning for a permanent repair and rehab of the Beach Trail will continue with a planned start date of early 2018.
A huge thanks to the Sacramento staff who sprang into action to implement this project, the CCC crew who performed all the labor (approx. 25 tons of rock and 30 tons of road base moved so far!) and the Torrey Pines Docent Society who stood by at the barricades to answer visitors questions about the closure and direct them to open trails.
California State Parks continues implementing water conservation measures within its state park system. Effective July 15, all state parks and beaches will shut off outdoor rinse stations. View the full media release here, (New Water Conservation Measures (pdf))
State beaches are areas with frontage on the ocean, or bays designed to provide swimming, boating, fishing, and other beach-oriented recreational activities. This wide, sandy beach stretches 4 1/2 miles from Del Mar past Los Peñasquitos Lagoon to the base of sandstone cliffs at Torrey Pines Mesa. Swimming, surfing and fishing are popular. Red-hued bluffs and wet sand make strolling on the beach popular at low tide. A picnic area and parking lot are near the entrance on North Torrey Pines Road.
The beach can also be reached by trail from the Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve.
Annual Passes are now sold at the entrance kiosk station operated by our concessionaire, LAZ Parking. The entrance kiosk station is open from 8:00am to approximately a 1/2 hour before sunset 365 days a year.
Torrey Pines prohibits dogs anywhere within the reserve and beach boundaries (even within a vehicle).
The Beach is located one mile south of Del Mar on North Torrey Pines Road.
