The reserve consists of a plateau with cliffs that overlook Torrey Pines State Beach and a lagoon that is vital to migrating seabirds. Many kinds of wildlife and flora are found within the reserve, including bobcats, foxes, skunks, raccoons, coyotes, rabbits, cacti, coastal chaparral, and the rare Torrey pine.
