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!

Great workout spot, surrounded by nature. Staircase that goes to the bottom of the sinkhole. Coming back up is tough.

Nice walk in the woods. Lots of mosquitos so wear bug spray. Definitely not a moderate trail, very easy.

Not much to see. The stairs into the sinkhole are well spaced, not to far apart. Makes for an easier climb up.
