0.7 miles, 1 hour or less
The Parry Grove trail is a short 0.5 mile loop that starts on the side of the Torrey Pines Park Road, across from the stairs leading to High Point. Starting from the trailhead, walk through the Whitaker Garden area, where you will find the names of many plants in the area. The loop part of the trail is a steep descent down to the grove with a bench that with nice views over the shrubs and ocean.
Wear sturdy shoes, be prepared for a rougher terrain during ascent and descent(don't go on a rainy muddy day).
Though short, the area is not well shaded; wear sunscreen and hat during sunny days.
Combine this trail with a walk up the steps to High Point across the road. The High point has bench and pine tree shades so one can take a rest.
