My dog and I are weekly visitors, we love it! The sink hole makes it unique. She does the stairs much better than I do. The rangers are friendly and keep the park clean and safe. It's a great place to get exercise, have lunch, and take in the Florida scenery. Bristol likes meeting other dogs and people too.

It is a beautiful trail with lots of little off shoots, my only issue was you could hear the roar of the city mixed in the sounds of the teail.

The biker riders were rude and not considerate of hikers, they felt it was their trail.

Beautiful! Great short hike doing the nature trail and awesome seeing the sinkhole, I had no idea this was here. Also there is a $4 per vehicle fee at the parking lot that runs on the honor system, which we didn't know about.

Good family nature trail. Lots of stairs down the sink hole so may not be the best for small children though. Flat nature hike around the sink hole area though.

I've been riding this trail for years and it never gets old. With every season comes a new trail. Smooth path, pretty frequent scenic stops. A must-ride if you are in the area.

This is my favorite trail in Florida.

Stairs that people work out on. Beautiful small water falls leading to the sink hole. The info desk is really friendly and helpful!
