Chris D. on Leon Sinks Geological Area
Pretty hike. Interesting place but all fairly anticlimactic.
Be cautious using the direction tab! There is no access to this multi-use trail North and East of the Ochlockonee and Sopchoppy. Trail is double track, dirt and gravel roads, and well maintained. the campground at Womack Creek is very well kept and has a campground host. $2 allows day use of the toilet and bath house. Nice views of the creek. Trail was quiet and without any traffic on a Sunday afternoon.
Not bad. Recommend early spring or early fall. We did it middle of assume and the heat stress is worse than the worse elevation change on the AT. We did 10 miles here where we could've done 25 in the Shenandoah. Don't underestimate waste consumption. We stopped at every lake to fill up. Trail is very well marked but doesn't seem to have alot of traffic, so keep an out for the blazes and bring a map. We talked to the 'Camp Host' at Camel Lake and he kept an eye on the vehicle and made sure we made it back. Camel Lake has good facilities and the lake is a good swim. Happy trails.
This is an easy hike for almost anyone. Hammock Sink and Big Dismal Sink are a must see. There is also a natural bridge were Fisher Creek disappears in a sink and then rises a few feet away. The trail crosses this natural bridge giving the hiker a chance to explore this natural wonder up close. Do not hike this trail from late May to early October during the middle of the day.
Love running this trail! Lots of beautiful scenery to see along the way. Parts are sandy, but most of it is firm. A few low-grade hills make it even more interesting. It is fairly remote, so play it safe and take a running buddy.
