Torreya is incredible. The elevation changes and steep hills make you feel like you're on some of the lower foothills of the AT. The hikes are challenging and strenuous and, once you're on the trail, it's well marked, just getting to either the challenge or the torreya trails is a little confusing with the map. Very rarely do you see... More

We love the park....the nature hike is quite the work out.......but the view of the river from the high bank is breath taking. Visit the Mansion while here it's great.

My husband, son, and I took the dog and spent the day at this beautiful park. We did the first trail totaling 7 miles, it was intense, we were uphill, downhill, Along the Apalachicola river, steep ledges, and cliffs towering the tree tops. It was a blast, we plan to return to complete the challenge trail. For living in Florida... More

Torreya is a wonderland of scenery, history and ecology. The historic old Gregory Mansion is beautiful as is the view from the top of the bluff in front of it. This is one of the few places in Florida where you can stand and see miles of surrounding countryside. The trails are steep and a good place to warm up... More

My wife and I hike here one or two times a year. We do the 6.7 mile loop that starts from parking on left as you enter park. Don't forget to pick up the $3 park pass first. You hike through pine and wire grass parkland, following 10000s of year old river bank, down to apalachicola river, almost tropical with... More

The house and associated story are fascinating. We were escorted by a guide-in-training who did a great job. The "real" guide had to mind the store as we arrived at 11 for the one and only 10 o'clock tour. The Appalachacola which the site overlooks is the Central/Eastern time line. The cell tower setting your auto clock is on slow... More

Our family spent a 3 day weekend here and it has been a great time. Day activities of hiking through the trails and evenings spent by the fire ring enjoying the quiet. This park offers plenty of space and options for anyone who loves the outdoors. It has been a lovely change from the flat lands found in the area.

We spent a 3 day weekend in April, camping in our pop up and exploring the trails. A few minor negatives, just to get them out of the way: Space. The reservation website warns that sites 1-8 and 12-15 are narrow. Just know that this is a fair & honest warning. The sites are narrow, but at least they are... More

This out of the way park has all types of camping from RV/cabin camping to primitive tent camping. The Gregory House tours provide and interesting glimpse into the historic South. The staff is friendly, the area is quiet, and the scenery is beautiful.

We spent a week in Torreya State Park, camping, hiking, and geocaching, and it has become my new favorite state park in Florida. The campground is small (only 30 sites), quiet, and up on a ridge with vista views and cool breezes. The staff (rangers and camp host) are very helpful and friendly and went out of their way to...
