Illustration by Victoria Fernández

Difficulty Level

Easy, great for beginners in decent shape

Distance

2.2 miles for the loop

Good to Know

Dog Friendly
Free Parking

Where

Park at the corner of Del Mar Heights Road and Durango Drive, then follow the loop to Racetrack View Drive.

 

Why We Love It

It has the beautiful beachy scenery of Torrey Pines without the crowds or expensive parking.

 

Where to Refuel

Head to the rooftop terrace at Sbicca (215 15th Street, Del Mar) and pick from a range of omelets, crab cakes with avocado-mango slaw, or chicken steamed buns with hoisin mayo, and wash it down with $5 mimosas.

 

What to Instagram

The long flight of wooden stairs you have to traverse to get back to the trailhead. You did it!
