hike was nice, I think I went at the wrong time, no waterfall, the sinkhole wasn't full, it was a little dried, I might do it again after the rain season, it's worth it, the bridge is still broken.

Trail was amazing. Loved it. The sink hole was amazing. A lot of stairs. The ground of the trails bumpy but so much fun. A short trail though, it is easy.

They are doing construction on the bridge that connects the loop but it’s still so beautiful in the morning. Flat enough to bike although I’m not sure your allowed. Recommend for beginner hikers and people who just want to enjoy nature!

It's such a short nature walk, I wouldn't even consider it a trail. The sinkhole is neat to see, the stairs are newer and easy to go up and down, they are not narrow or steep. You'll only spend 20-30 minutes here if you see the sinkhole and do the loop, so not worth the drive unless you are coming to the area for something else, luckily we were. Dog friendly if they are leashed.

nice flat trail (if you ignore the stairway down to the sinkhole). Will be even better when the bridge is fixed and the loop trail is a loop again.

Trail is beautiful but pretty short. Sink hole is the sight to see here. Bridge is still closed so trail seems even shorter and no update on when it will be fixed.

Easy trail, all vertical portions have stairs so highly accessible for young and old. Unique views for this part of Florida.

Awesome experience. While the trail is short, and you’re essentially just climbing down 300 feet of stairs and then back up again. The views of the waterfalls from the bottom are amazing.

Great spot. Floods out pretty often though so call ahead. San felasco is nearby though!

Trail itself is really short and floods out after even a moderate rain from the previous day. The sinkhole boardwalk is still closed and you can barely see down into it from the trail. I'd skip this place for now.

Just went, it's a beautiful place but yes unfortunately the sink hole is still closed and I was told will remain closed for up to 4 more months.
