It's a very nice trial, but very hot in the summer. Bringing adequate water is a must. I would definitely have enjoyed this trail better in the winter.
Simple short clean
Awesome little hike. Really well marked and maintained. It was a little tricky to find but that's NOT the parks fault. 2 of the sink holes are just plain cool. Especially Big Dismal.
Pretty hike. Interesting place but all fairly anticlimactic.
This is the perfect time of year to go. Very few bugs and the sinks are a gorgeous blue. Between sinks though there wasn't much to see.
We hiked both trails for a total of about 5.5 miles. Easy hike. The wet sinks were gorgeous. The rest weren't anything to write home about. Did enjoy the signs along the trails with tidbits of info and trails were very well marked!
Do not follow these directions to the site! Go to the main sinks parking lot. Tons of ticks and mosquitoes at least in summer. Maybe a better trail for winter. The location mentioned here is actually dangerous and do not go alone.
The directions did not lead me to the location so not a good start updates later
Very good for a beginning trail. Sink holes are really fun to look at and the North Florida wilderness is beautiful to look at.
This is a very easy hike for a beginner. Likewise, this is a nice trail for a jog or a run. Best time to go is November to early April. Big Dismal sink is the must-see. Cash for entry on a dropbox honor system!
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.
Leon Sinks is close to Tallahassee, an easy hike and a nice example of local karst terrains with both hardwood hammocks and long leaf pine scrub. It's nice for a casual stroll or a family outing. I was last there with our Webelos den.
It's a nice little jaunt.
Enjoyed Big Dismal Sinkhole, what a view! Plan to go back for swamp trail.
