Time Out says

Enjoy a bird’s-eye view of San Diego’s exceptional Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve, by swooping serenely overhead in a paraglider. Torrey Pines Gliderport is home to one of the most successful paragliding schools in North America, and flight experiences (10 minutes on the ground and 20-25 minutes in the air) start from $165. You’ll be strapped to a qualified pilot so there’s nothing to worry about except enjoying the views of the 2,000-acre reserve, its numerous hiking trails and sandstone cliffs beneath you (look ahead and you’ll also get an eyeful of gorgeous Pacific).
