Torrey Pines State Beach, Flat Rock Professional Review and Guide
"Torrey Pines State Beach is a wide sandy beach backed by dramatic 300-foot sandstone bluffs, some of the tallest coastal cliffs in San Diego County. The beach is located between Del Mar and La Jolla beneath the wild, weather-beaten cliffs of Torrey Pines State Reserve. The hike follows the isolated southern portion of the state beach, passing deep badland canyons and razor-edged ridges dotted with Torrey pines. The beach continues to the tidepools at Flat Rock, an erosion-resistant slab rock protruding out to sea. The return route climbs the sculpted sedimentary cliffs to the bluffs and loops back on the descending park road."
