Very friendly to different levels. it was dry but I suspect when it rains it must be very muddy.

Talk to the ranger station first if you want to bring your dogs. You can bring your dogs on a leash on the trail but you cannot camp at the primitive sites with your dogs. But if you rent a camping site in the park they can put you in a pet friendly spot.

We took the horses and had a great time! Park the trailers in the grass near the information sign. The road splits there - trails to the right were muddy and not great, but trails to the left were perfect! They connect up to a power line road, plenty of room and safe, solid trails to even do some trot/canter sets to get the horses in shape. It was nice and dry and free of mud. Will definitely be going back. Would be great to take the dogs too!

The trail was very enjoyable going up and down the ravines. It's definitely one of Florida hilliest trail.

I hiked this trail as part of the Florida Trail IDIDAHIKE 2018, always a great State Park to go hike and camp at.
The trails are marked and maintained well

Took a short hike towards old grist mill. Well marked trail. But found it confusing where to locate other trails, then it started to rain. Maybe more next visit
Nice playgrounds and camp sites

Another nice hike on a Saturday morning.

family loved it

Very well maintained. Trail is well marked.

must have recently had a controlled burn.

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

We took my 60+ parents and our 9, 6 year old. We had a great time and were impressed with the elevation level for Florida. The only down side was the trail was right by the road taking away some of the illusion of being off in nature.

This park was a development project that was shut down by the government because of endangered habitat. The path was the road going in to the neighborhood. Looks like the road was intentionally torn up. Two loops. Long loop seems to always be closed. No park staff.

I really enjoyed this walk. The lake was beautiful. Enjoyed a lunch with my girlfriend.

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.

Great palms & not much people

Not much of a hike, just a walk. But the ruins are beautiful.

Hiked a combination of Yellow and Green trails due to Blue being temporarily closed to rid the area of Southern Pine Beetle outbreak.
Small hills and change of terrain was nice.

We drove up and parked. If you're not a pass holder, you'll need to get an envelope from the deposit box and leave $3. Tear off the stub and hang on your rearview mirror. I took one of my dogs on a Friday morning around 0930. We saw maybe 4 bikers. The paved trail is awesome. Lots of room for bikers to go around you. We walked about 2 miles and took a right and walked another .5 miles to the "beach side" where lots of downed trees are. It's sandy and very beautiful. People started flocking to the area around 11am. Clean, lots of trees and bushery. This will be a regular place to take my dogs for a nice and relaxing walk.

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.

I liked that it was short due to being somewhat handicapped. I really enjoyed reading the informational plaques.

We camped at the Astronomy Site which was amazing. Never have I seen so many stars. We woke up the next morning around 8:30 and headed on the trail. The trail is not marked but easy to follow you just have to stay to the right hand at each Fork go to the right. We saw tons of birding while we were out there. We also saw a few Young deer on the trail. There's A Primitive campsite that if no one is there you can stop and have a snack and relax. It goes through two or three different hammocks and the Prairie portion of the hike reminded me of being in Africa for some reason. There's great scenery throughout the hike and the only downside is of course our Florida Sugar Sand towards the end of the hike but it wasn't too bad.

I just spoke to a ranger at the park. The trail is closed at this time due to a large wildfire in the Picayune State Forest nearby, and only about 2 miles of trail are open, due to hurricane damage from Irma, and there is no timeline of when the trail will be restored.

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
