"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." Read more

"Broken Hill Trail is considered the premier trail at Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve. Scenic overlooks and access to Torrey Pines State Beach are all part of this hike. The surroundings offer little cover, and the hike can be moderately steep at some points. The trail intersects Razor Point Trail at the beach and ties into the trail to Blacks Beach. The wind-sculpted hills offer unique terrain." Read more
