Torreya State Park, FL

What a beautiful day today was! A little humid, but temperature was perfect. A good day for a walk.

Torreya State Park has a total of 16 miles of hiking trails. We’re not quite up to that much hiking so we took a shorter path. This one was an old park road leading to an old stone arch bridge.

Torreya State Park is one of the first state parks opened to the public in Florida in 1935. The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) built the roads and bridges here sometime between 1933 and 1942. The remains of a stone retaining wall can be seen along side parts of the old road.

Seeing the stone bridge was our reward for hiking down the hill. But now we have to turn around and go back up the hill. It wasn’t steep, just harder going up than going down.

That’s it. That’s all we did today. The rest of the time we just hung around the campsite and enjoyed the fine weather.
