The trails are nice and fun. A little spooky sometimes with the caves lol. The cavern tour is the best. The Rangers are very knowledgable about the formations. Very fun and educational.

Great hike, particularly if you get off the trail and climb trees and rocks!

Very nice hiking area with scenery. The caverns are cool which is nice after hiking around in the heat.

The Florida Caverns State Park offers several short trails when combined offer a full day of nature in one of Florida's great parks. Near the Visitor Center parking lot is the Bluff Trail, Shortcut Trail, and the Beech Magnolia Trail. These trails are primarily for hiking, but after you cross the Chipola River, you will find the Sinkhole Trail, River Trail, and Fence Line Trail. These three trails are multipurpose allowing hiking, cycling, and horseback riding. The park has diverse natural communities ranging from floodplain forest to upland hardwood forest. There are caves, bluffs, and springs aplenty. Living near the park I find early October to May is the best time to visit or camp.

I made the mistake of bringing my dogs here so the caverns were off limits. We had to make due with the trails around the park and I was not impressed. The park did not seem very large and we finished the trails fairly quickly. Nothing really interesting to see and you would constantly brush up against fences indicating privately owned land. Bring bug spray.

Well, from the name, you know there are caves to venture through. Whether you do it via the daily tours, or are an avid self-reliant cavern monkey, the view is great. There are marshlands aside from the trails that we use for our annual Holiday picture's background. Our three kids have been enjoying this State Park a couple times a year. Last I knew there were some geocaches there also. Along the horse riding trails, beware the expected biting flies, but let your keen eyes wander along for lizards and salamanders. The cooler the temps, the more enjoyable.
