...  Signposts and 8 miles of well marked trails will take you into the park or down to the beaches, including one of the largest nude beaches in California.  If you’re here on a weekend they also have guided walks where a ranger will show you around and highlight flora/fauna. This is not Mexico – a day of sunbathing and playing around in the water really isn’t at the top of most lists.  A few noteworthy beaches: Blacks:  This is the nude beach down below the Torrey Pines State...
