Views of the Pacific Ocean abound at Torrey Pines State Reserve Park, near La Jolla, California (north of San Diego, and south of Los Angeles). Piece together the Razor Point, Beach, and Broken Hill trails to make a nice loop hike on cliffs overlooking the water. Then, hike down to the beach and dip your toes in the ocean.
From Interstate 5, exit onto Carmel Valley Road, and head towards the ocean. At the end of the road, turn left onto Torrey Pines Road and enter the park.
