Hinson Trail.
Built by members of the Florida Trail Association.
Loop trail. but any time it rains hard, the river has a chance of flooding the park.
several sinkholes and a beautiful riverside trail area. the trail also follows thru several open pastures.
do not forget The Ovens. a natural cave right above the river.

Looks like a fun trail by rhw river;
we were unable to complete it because the trail had flooded on a couple of places.

One of the most beautiful hidden gems in the Marianna area. So much to do for the whole family. It is regular destination for us.

Great hike! If you take the whole loop about an hour of it is just a trail in the woods with a few open fields, but the rest of the hike on the river is amazing! There are rope swings (it was a bit old for that), a cavern, and some great views! Worth the trip.

very beautiful park, unfortunatley didnt get to hike most of the loop either way as the river had flooded the trsil due to the rainstorm a few days ago, not sure how long after a rainstorm the trail would be flooded but If you do the trail, avoid it within a week or two of a big rainstorm. Im re attempting this trsil in either feb or march

The Hinson or Perimeter trail is a great trail for children to learn about nature. The trail starts on the banks of the spring feed Chipola River and if you hike counter-clockwise, you will soon come to Alamo Cave and the bluff over the Ovens. The Ovens, best accessed from the Chipola, while kayaking or canoeing is a cave system. This is also a great place to kayak and the park has a nice kayak and canoe lunch at the trailhead. If you chose, you can both hike and enjoy the area from the river on the same trip.
