Sinkhole Boardwalk Closed
The sinkhole boardwalk is closed due to damages from Hurricane Irma, however construction of the new boardwalk is well underway. Two-thirds of the old boardwalk has already been removed and the new boardwalk material is following closely behind. The new boardwalk completion date is still on schedule to open this summer. During construction, access to our nature trail is limited - it is no longer a loop and is now an out and back trail. Views into the sinkhole are still provided. We apologize for any inconvenience.
A one-half mile nature trail meanders along the top of the sinkhole, and a boardwalk system descends to the bottom of the Devil's Millhopper. Dogs on a hand-held 6-foot leash are welcome.
This is a popular spot for a quick escape from town for a picnic. Dogs on a hand-held 6-foot leash are welcome.
Guided walks with a Park Ranger are available every Saturday at 10 a.m. Special guided walks for groups are available by reservations. Call 386-462-7905 for more information.
Squirrels, rabbits, and a variety of reptiles and amphibians can be seen in the park. Birds of the pinelands and suburbs are also commonly sighted. Bring your binoculars on your next visit!
The visitor center offers exhibits explaining the formation of the Devil's Millhopper. An audio visiual program is also available.
This National Natural Landmark has been visited by the curious since the 1880s. Fossilized remains of extinct animals, found at the bottom of the sink, have helped researchers learn about Florida's natural history.
Bring your pet for a walk on the nature trail, to go for a picnic or walk down to the sinkhole. Please be a responsible pet owner and pick up after your pet. Pets must be on a six-foot hand held leash. See pet policy.
