I don’t think it was a moderate hike it was pretty easy but it was gorgeous!

Was a very small park, we hiked and explored the entire park in under 2 hours, but was very beautiful. Helpful hint, in order to see the falls you must go on a day after a rain.

Was a very entertaining cave tour, plus my wife and I had a great time exploring the Bluff trail afterwards. We had Robinson as our guide.

Definitely worth the drive for a nice weekend of kayaking. But call ahead to make sure water levels are high. When low, the scenic loop is inaccessible leaving only the larger parts of the creek full of alligators. Still fun if you aren't scared of a few bull gators

Not your typical Florida hike. Being from S Florida I am used to flat,sandy,scrub hiking. Torreya was great. Reminded me of out west with the hills and streams. I found it very
strenuous. Total elev. changes of 1600 feet.
Nicely marked trail. Cute little bridges.
Lots of up and down. Didn't see any wildlife and only 2 other hikers. Started at the picnic area.
Definitely recommend this hike if you want a challenge and enjoy the beauty of forest hiking.

Completed the loop on my dads b day (15.83 miles). He passed away several years ago and I wanted to commemorate his life. Took me about 6 hours with several stops to snack and rest my feet. Bring sunscreen, bug spray, and “plenty” of water. Not much shade to be had. But over the day was successful. Good luck!

I love the AllTrail App because most trails are not well marked. This trail is very well marked and enjoyable. Thank you to the volunteers for maintaining the trail!

not very well marked once you get to the beach, but the driftwood area is very unique

Not a long trail but a favorite for incline.

Bring bug spray or you'll be keeping a quick pace.

The lake has been drained. Dead fish everywhere. Also the path is very open and not in very much in nature

Awesome trail for short or long hikes. I like to find a place and hang a hammock for a few hours then hike back. The river has great swimming holes and sand bars for cooling off.

Went out there today, and it was absolutely beautiful, you can tell the water flooding height on the trees, however it's not flooded as of right now. A perfect mix of tall pines, saw palms, tons of wildlife of all kinds, sugar sand stretches allowing you to see all the different wild life prints, and opens up to a beautiful stretch of the St.Johns river. Absolutely beautiful.

Nice tree canopy, not a lot of litter like I've seen on other trails, bring bug spray the skeeters are huge, I saw loads of wildlife even had several woodpeckers follow me through the trail. This is one of the better trails I've been on. Good stuff, always remember. Take nothing but memories, leave nothing but footprints. Enjoy fellow hikers.

Good trail. one of my favorite!

Well maintained narrow trail- beautiful path right up next to the river. Lot's of sawgrass. Saw some wildlife.

Great hike. Quite a few spots were water logged and a bit of slogging but still beautiful. Completed 7.44 miles. Can’t wait to go again.

Since we were going only to hike, the very short walk to the spring amidst swimmers was not worth the $10 park entry.

Had a nice time! Saw a skink on the white trail, and several birds I’m sure enthusiasts would enjoy as well.

I short hike because when you get into the trail eventually Peters out. Could to still be Irma damage? The park was packed, very nice! Last time was here was all by myself

60 % of trail has been controlled burned.. several times through low lying areas the trail was completely under water. Recent storms have damaged a few of the foot bridges.With a little work and allowing time for the undergrowth to grow back this would be a great trail,

EASY TRAIL! Hiked this clear sunny morning, at the end of February. Very peaceful, easy walk, with very little changes in elevation & clearly marked. My son pointed out a small gator watching those fishing on the lake in boats, gator "slides", turtles, squirrels, birds, jumping fish and a little beaver with its damn. Loop Trail follows around the lake, has lots of benches to stop and rest, and boardwalk areas over some muddy ground. Only encountered two areas that that still need some development, and got my shoes a little muddy. Gravel has been added to many parts of the trail to prevent this, for sure footing in muddy areas. Small access roads on other side of lake from camping area and parking, have boat ramps and cool areas to also camp away from the bathrooms and RV crowd. Wear bug spray. : )

Loved the winding trails from Monroe park to Gemini springs and back. Haven't gone the full length of the paved trail yet, but I believe you could easily get in a 15 mile ride if you want to. Very quiet during week days. There are picnic tables and trash cans at a few spots in between, if you're running and want a quick rest. Overall, beautiful and very well kept paved trails. Saw that there were some trails for running, but haven't explored those just yet.

this app needs to update their map regarding relocated trail head

Nice little trail! It's a weekday so I pretty much had the whole park to myself.

Beautiful Torreya! This trail is perfect if you’re looking for a good workout! The beauty of the ravines and bluffs will keep you going! Well maintained throughout.

wonderful paved multi use trail!

Enjoyable wooded trail with long boardwalk over swampy area that leads to a small stream.
