If I go down to Black's beach here and go south (towards Ellen Browning Scripps Memorial Pier) along the ocean, how far can I go and where can I exit? I walked 15-20 minutes in the direction mentioned above and I saw a car road that goes up from the beach. I wasn't able to find it on Google Maps. Where does it go? I didn't go further south along the ocean, but it was possible to go further (even though Google Maps showed that I was walking in the ocean). If I kept going, where would I be able to exit the beach?

Alternatively, if one goes north from the point in the link, are there any exits there?

If you head south you will be able to exit at Torrey Pines City Beach, a path leads up to a suburb from which you can easily exit on to N Torrey Pines Road.

Further along south you can walk all the way to La Jolla Shores, a public beach with street access.

If you head north you will run into Torrey Pines State Reserve, from which there is a trail that will lead you back up to the road. Going further north you will eventually hit the entrance to the state reserve. Here the road runs right along the beach.

I can't remember how long it takes to walk, but it is at least a mile either way on sand, so I expect more than 20 minutes.

  • Do you know how low the tide should be to be able to walk to all those places?
