  • Such an interesting geologic site in an otherwise drab landscape. Shame on you State of Florida and Park management for not fixing the stairs down to the sink hole within a month after the hurricanes.  more »
  • Nice leisurely walk. I didn't take the stairs, just the trail. Enjoyed all the birds and the nice weather.  more »
  • Natural sinkhole worth seeing. Not only interesting, but cheap. A place you can also utilize to exercise just going up and down the stairs of the sinkhole. There's also a hiking trail and a waterfall.  more »

  • Interesting geological site. The trip to the bottom is pretty easy, but coming back up is a little more strenuous. Small pool at the bottom with a few small springs emptying into it. The walking path that winds around the sinkhole is really nice, quiet, serene. Good place to walk your dog.
  • Beautiful park! Looking down into the sinkhole is an amazing sight. The ranger on duty was very informative. I also loved the little kiosk area with information and a video of the history.
  • The Devil's Millhopper is a great place to travel back in time to old Florida. There's trees that grow there that are rarely seen in North Florida today and the sink with the waterfall is not a common site in the state either. There are a lot of steps to the bottom, though, so wear comfortable clothing.
  • Very interesting geological formation. Unfortunately the boardwalk to te bottom was closed due to hurricane Irma damage. We went to the bottom many years ago and it is something worth seeing. #TRAVELFORMORTALS
  • The stairs down to the water are closed. :( Made us pay $4 with no signs or warning. Cute, short trail tho.
