Torreya - Geo-Seeking

Geocaching is an outdoor game using hand-held global positioning systems (GPS) devices. It's effectively an inexpensive, interactive, high-tech treasure hunt that's a great way to learn geography. Participants use location coordinates to find caches. Some caches are easy to find; others are more difficult. The biggest reward is the thrill of the search and the discovery of a place where you have never been. Geocaching should have minimal impact to the environment and conscientious land use ethics should be followed.

The Operation Recreation GeoTour hosted by Geocaching.com, stretches from Pensacola to Key West and includes 71 of the First Three Time National Gold Medal Award Winning Florida State Parks and Trails. Visit 20 caches and win the Official Operation Recreation Geocoin. Download and print the Official Tracking Sheet to begin your adventure.

Historic site icon

Torreya - Historic Site

Torreya State Park is one of the original Florida State Parks opening to the public in 1935.  The park was created by the hard work of the CCC (Civilian Conservation Corps) and the Florida Board of Parks. The expert craftsmanship of the CCC workers can still be seen today in the re-construction of the circa 1840's Historic Gregory House or the beautiful Stone Bridge on the old "Federal Highway" or step inside one of the original CCC Barracks no matter what, you will love Torreya.

Torreya - Historic Site

Torreya State Park is rich in history.  During the Civil War some 200 Confederate Soldiers called the high bluffs home for two years.  The cannon emplacements are still visible today along one of our hiking trails.  We also offer daily tours of the 1840's Plantation Home of Jason Gregory and family.  This 3,000 square foot home originally sat on the West Bank of the Apalachicola River. The home was donated to the Civilian Conservation Corps in the late 1930's with the understanding that the home must be dismantled and moved.  The CCC workers took every brick and board, loaded the pieces on barges and transferred to the East Bank and then re-constructed the fine old home where it can be seen today.
