Just spent two nights at Torreya State Park. It is a beautiful park. There are both primitive and drive in campsites. We completed the Torreya Challenge Hike (eastern loop) which is five miles. For those of you that dont think we have mountains in Florida you need to give this hike a try. Not for sure what the elevation gain/loss... More

I hiked the ~8 mile trail. It was beautiful, and challenging for Florida's typical flat trails. I highly recommend it!

The spaces were too close together, otherwise this is 5 star. Very remote with excellent hiking and great views. You can actually see some fall colors. Great hikes for flatlanders.

That is what I said. From exit 285 (hwy 52) on I-75 it's two hours to I-10, then two hours west to exit 166 (about 30 miles west of Tallahassee). Then follow the signs about 14 miles. This small camp ground (one cabin, one yurt and about twenty tent and RV sites) will blow you away. It sits on a... More

Torreya Sate Park was a beautiful park. The views from the lookout point of the lands below the bluff are breathtaking. It certainly was a side of Florida I hadn't experienced before. We stayed in the 1 yurt available in the campgrounds. It was an awesome experience. It was very clean and well-maintained. There were even some hidden surprised in... More

Unusual tree species. Old restored Plantation Era mansion on the bluff of the Apalachicola River. Best time to visit is the spring with flowering trees and scrubs: Redbud, Dogwood and Magnolia trees. Great for picnics and hiking.

This is a wonderful state park with plenty of shade and quiet. This park is a little off the beaten path with the nearest town 13 miles away. The park is clean, quiet and easy to check into. We showed up with no reservation and picked our camp site. Walk-in guests will need check in at the office between 1500-1700.... More

If you think that Florida doesn't have any hills or inclines, then you haven't been to Torreya State Park in the panhandle. There are 2 main loops that are both over 6 miles long, so make sure you pack PLENTY of water, or you will be miserable. You overlook and hike next to the Apalachicola River, and that is pretty...

Torreya is unique in the hills and valleys on its hiking trails, for a floridain they feel more like mountains. The park has a very nice camping with WPA structures still in use and very well maintained. We like to hike from the campsites to the Apalachicola river, just pay attention to the trails as it is easy to get... More

This park has gorgeous views overlooking the Apalachicola River, and great hiking trails with a lot of up and down elevation changes. If you're from south Florida like we are, it may take some getting used to for climbing all of the hills. There is a little waterfall on a trail near the campground, and all the trails traverse many... More
