Huge trees and fern-covered sinkholes line Sink Hole Trail, the boardwalk that leads visitors to Florida's highest waterfall. Falling Waters Sink is a 100-foot deep, 20-foot wide cylindrical pit into which flows a small stream that drops 73 feet to the bottom of the sink. The water's final destination remains unknown. Only a few miles south of I-10, the park provides travelers with a quiet, serene stop on their journey. Visitors can see beautiful native and migrating butterflies in the butterfly garden, take a dip in the lake, or have a family picnic. Hikers can experience the verdant, gently sloping landscape of North Florida. Park rangers host interpretive programs in the amphitheater. Full-facility campsites nestled in a shady pine forest provide the perfect excuse for an overnight stay at Falling Waters.
The waterfall is nice for Florida, but kind of underwhelming. Very small beach area for swimming for the kids. Many many people out and walking this trail on a Saturday in February, so I can only imagine what it is like during summer.
Well maintained boardwalk and trails. You will only see the water falling during periods of regular rain, but when it is flowing it is quite a site. The many sinkholes are full of tropical ferns and wildflowers. Spring is beautiful and October (wildflower season) is colorful. A must see park if you are in the area!

Nice trails and highest waterfall in Florida. Must see! Go after a rain and there will be more water going over the falls.
