Hike the Sinkhole Trail

Florida Sinkhole Trailhead

Added by The Outbound Collective

Hike alongside gaping sinkholes and Florida's tallest waterfall in Falling Waters State Park.

This boardwalk trail passes by a number of sinkholes, leading ultimately to the most known attraction, Falling Waters Sink, a sinkhole with a waterfall dropping into it. In spring azaleas can be seen along the trail, as well.

Take a left on Sinkhole Trail, heading clockwise. After the 0.3 mile loop, take the trail heading down to Falling Waters. To lengthen your hike, climb up to Wiregrass Trail, which leads to a small lake. Your turn around point for a 2 mile hike is the trail junction with Terrace Trail.

This hike is not recommended for dogs, due to the drop offs on either side of the trail.

Hike the Gobbler Ridge Trail

Florida / Gobbler Ridge Trailhead

I'm not sure why this trail is called Gobbler Ridge. I do understand the Gobbler part as there are wild turkeys in the park.
