Torreya State Park Trails
Panoramic views atop the bluffs of Floridaâ€™s largest river
Torreya State Park is officially designated as part of Floridaâ€™s Statewide Greenways and Trails System. With panoramic views atop the bluffs of Floridaâ€™s largest river, the Apalachicola, Torreya offers visitors an experience that is rarely found in the Sunshine State. This lush park is home to varied natural communities from river swamps to high pinelands. Bluffs and extensive ravines provide an opportunity to experience challenging topography â€“ at least on Florida standards. Plant life along the river is similar to that of natural communities in the Appalachian Mountains of Georgia, and the area is said to provide Floridaâ€™s finest display of fall color. The park is named for a species of rare Torreya tree that occurs only on the bluffs along the Apalachicola River.
