This is a great hike, not to hard but it will get your heart beating on the way back up. This like is less than a mile. Unpaved, uneven paths,, great views.

I believe this trail is roughly two miles. Don't quote me on that. It's short enough to do in an hour or you can take your time and explore the sinkhole and veer off the path a little. There are some steps so be prepared...More

This is a beautiful walk through the woods to a very large sink hole. Fairly easy hike but it does have some stairs. It is nicely shaded. Well worth the hike. Even my teenagers thought it was pretty neat!

It's not a hard little hike. It was extremely humid, but everything was lush and green. Shady trail. 2 miles round trip. Worth the hike? Not really. The sink hole is unimpressive, but it was still a nice walk. There are many stairs headed down,...More
