Backpacking Bly Gap to Neels Gap

Backpacking Southbound

 from Bly Gap to Neels Gap

Back in the month of December, 2011, the JaxTal Adventure Club embarked on a 45 mile backpacking trip. We had transport up to the closest drop-off point we could get to Bly Gap and started our hiking  just below Bly Gap at Blue Ridge Gap, hiking southbound to Neels gap on the Appalachian Trail. We visited most of the shelters, enjoyed mountain vistas and rugged trails.

 We planned out our itinerary before starting, allowing plenty of time to complete the trek.

Camping at Torreya State Park

Torreya State Park is located about 60 miles west of Tallahassee, Florida in the “Big Bend”. This park is noted for its varied terrain, ranging from hardwood to swamp wetlands and an area we Floridians could call “canyons” (large washed out clay hills). It’s the closest thing we can find around here that is similar to the beautiful Appalachian Mountains. The park has a nice network of trails to explore. My 13 year old son and I arrived at the park on Friday afternoon at 3:00 pm, the first day of spring. We had made reservations ahead to ensure our sites in the primitive camp areas. Because our region had been receiving abundant amounts of rainfall, we knew the mosquitoes would be in full force. We were not disappointed. We came prepared with plenty of bug repellent.  This trip could be called an "Introduction to Backpacking" for me and my son. We have done car camping, but yearned for a taste of “true” camping.
