The 1984 General Plan for Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve identified resource impacts, including erosion and de-vegetation, resulting from recreational trail use as primary management concerns. The 1984 plan called for removal and rehabilitation of abandoned trails, development of connections and viewpoints for existing trails, and new installations for interpretation.
 
Now it’s time to get more specific, and you can help—

Parry Grove Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony

An official public ceremony was held Sunday, March 15, 2015, at 10:00 a.m., with representatives of California State Parks, Torrey Pines Docent Society, and Torrey Pines Association participating in a "ribbon cutting."
 
Docents were on hand to lead guided hikes on the trail. After a very special inaugural walk for TPA donors, Parry Grove Trail is now open.

Work on the Parry Grove Trail is complete, thanks to the support of Torrey Pines Association members (especially a major anonymous donor), Torrey Pines Docent Society, and the hard work of California State Parks.

Parry Grove Pre-Opening

After a very special inaugural walk for TPA donors, Parry Grove Trail is now open.
Work on the Parry Grove Trail is complete, thanks to the support of Torrey Pines Association members (especially a major anonymous donor), Torrey Pines Docent Society, and the hard work of California State Parks.

Three group of TPA donors led by Docents were the first to walk this historic trail after its thorough restoration. Their generous donations will go toward future trail maintenance in the Reserve. Stay tuned for photos,  the official ribbon-cutting ceremony on March 15 and more Parry Grove tours!
