Nice boardwalk and views of waterfall into sinkhole. Easy short walk.

If you're looking for a long hike this is not for you, as far as the moderate rating i would say only because the boardwalk can get slippery other than that it's an easy trail.
I would recommend coming here after a good rain to ensure a good flow of water.
Hurricane Michael caused some damage and the lower observation deck was closed so getting a good look down the sink was out of the question.
There are several sinkholes that look very interesting but getting close to them is extremely dangerous and they've restricted that area.

Trail is small and can be completed in about an hour. However if you go to the falls after a rainy day it is really cool! Camping is also great here very relaxing

Boardwalk path with inclines and lots of steps weaved in... worth the hike, for a sit by the waterfall on a sunny day... (not wheelchair accessible due to the steps in multiple areas, but there is a nice campground and other areas to enjoy... also a lake, swimming area, playground, and picnic area... nice stop if you are traveling I10 for you to stretch your legs

Was a very small park, we hiked and explored the entire park in under 2 hours, but was very beautiful. Helpful hint, in order to see the falls you must go on a day after a rain.

Florida's only water fall and though not full, still a sight to see. Very easy trail, slightly slippery after a rain though.

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.
