What To Do
Enjoy a Morning Hike at Torrey Pines State Park
About Torrey Pines
Torrey Pines State Reserve is located in San Diego, Ca. It is a pristine and peaceful oceanside hiking trail that offers an escape into the ambience of natural wildlife.
Address: 12600 N Torrey Pines Rd, La Jolla, CA 92037
Hiking Tips & Information
Torrey Pines is an easy to moderate hiking trail that is a total of about 5 miles. It will typically take up to 2 hours to complete (depending on where you park). There is a parking lot at the bottom of the park entrance near the beach which has a $15 fee to park for the day. I highly recommend getting to the park early to beat the traffic and over-crowded trails.
Recover with a Nutritious Post-Hike Refreshment
Elixir Organic Juice Bar
About 10min away from Torrey Pines is the Elixir Organic Juice Bar located in Del Mar. A perfect spot to recover after a long hike. I loved all organic cold-pressed juice options on the menu. The menu also consists of smoothies and acai bowls as well.

Juice Recommendation: The Americana: Beets, Orange, Apple, Cucumber
Enjoy a Relaxing Afternoon at The Flower Hill Promenade
The Flower Hill Promenade is a nice place to hang out, relax, shop, and eat. It is a super artsy and creative spot as well. There is also a spot for relaxing while listening to live music and outdoor areas for kids to play.

Arsty Elements Everywhere
Where to Eat
Flower Child offers healthy and organic food made with quality fresh ingredients. I love that the cafe is so beautifully decorated as well. There is a ton of art displayed with messages of peace, love, and good vibes.

Menu Recommendation: The Mother Earth Bowl: ancient grains, sweet potato, portobello mushroom, avocado, cucumber, pistachio pesto, charred onion, leafy greens, red pepper miso vinaigrette, hemp seed
I hope this post is a helpful guide to spending a healthy and active day in the San Diego area. Starting the day off hiking at Torrey Pines is an absolute must do. You will get a great active workout in amongst beautiful nature and ocean views. There are plenty of food and drink options in the area but I definitely really enjoyed the post-hike drink at Elixir juice bar and the afternoon lunch at Flower Child in the Flower Hill Promenade.
