  • Some people really aren’t that intelligent. YES there are one or two waterfalls here, don’t expect a waterfall like ones you see in tennessee or North Carolina, it is florida for crying out loud. And....  more »
  • Very nice little park. The bridge was under repair so the trail wasn't a loop, but it's a nice walk no matter what. I'm so glad the boardwalk was open! Such a unique view, and waterfalls in Florida! If you want some great photos, I definitely recommend this little park. Not many animals but I saw frogs, snakes, and lots of insects. The fungi was really beautiful too. I'm very glad I got to see this amazing geological park.
  • It’s an enchanting wonder of natural Florida. The new boardwalk (reconstructed after Irma) looks great. Right as I was approaching the bottom of the sinkhole, it began to rain. It was magical to hear the rain gradually getting louder and see the surface of the water at the bottom begin to ripple. Truly beautiful.
