Devil's Millhopper Geological State Park
Nature Trail - Limited Access
The nature trail is open as an out and back trail (not a loop) due to the trail bridge closure. Views into the sinkhole are still provided. Update: as upgrades to the trail bridge started, it was determined that more extensive safety improvements must be made. These needs were difficult to detect until the renovation began. Bids are currently being discussed. Please check back for bridge and trail updates.
Sinkhole Boardwalk Now Open
The sinkhole boardwalk has been closed since September of 2017 due to damages from Hurricane Irma. The process took some time due to planning, engineering and Hurricane Michael, but construction finally started in January of 2019. After several months of construction we are proud to open our new boardwalk, once again providing access into the Devil's Millhopper sinkhole. We hope you come out to the park and enjoy it.
9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday. The park is closed Monday and Tuesday.
$4 per vehicle, up to 8 visitors. Pedestrians and bikes are $2.
Welcome to Devil's Millhopper Geological State Park
This National Natural Landmark has attracted curious visitors since the 1880’s.
In the midst of north Florida's sandy terrain and pine forests, a bowl-shaped cavity 120 feet deep leads down to a miniature rain forest. Small streams trickle down the steep slopes of the limestone sinkhole, disappearing through crevices in the ground. Lush vegetation thrives in the shade of the walls even in dry summers.
Researchers have learned a great deal about Florida's natural history by studying fossil shark teeth, marine shells and the fossilized remains of extinct land animals found in the sink. Visitors can enjoy picnicking and learn more about this sinkhole through interpretive displays.
