Broken Hill Trail to Flat Rock Professional Review and Guide
"The Broken Hill Trails are the longest trails in Torrey Pines State Park. The North and South Forks form a loop, then join and head down to the beach at Flat Rock. Both trails cross the rolling, chaparral-covered coastal bluffs along the drier section of the reserve. A short detour leads to the Broken Hill Overlook, a 300-foot escarpment with a view into the desert-looking badlands of Ladder Canyon. From the 350-foot terrace, the trail zigzags through a deep sandstone ravine to the sandy beach pocket with offshore rocks, tidepools, and Flat Rock."
