This walkway to the sinkhole has been renovated and repaired. It is a nice piece of nature, but nothing spectacular. It is a sink hold with pond at the bottom.

Best times to see about 7!small waterfalls is after heavy rains. Good hike up and down to get your heart rate up but you can take your time and enjoy the views. Small nearly 1 mile trail on top around the sinkhole.

Devil's Millhopper is a small park featuring a very short hike down a dirt trail and then staircase to a sinkhole. The sinkhole is interesting, but the entire experience took us less than 20 minutes. I would recommend combining a visit to Devil's Millhopper with...More

The park was not much of a great visit, perhaps if they will open other trails.....few attractions, it could be connected to San Felasco train right behind

Very short walk around the top of the sink. Call to see if stairs have been completely repaired to go down into the sink. Visitor Center has a short video as well. You could complete every thing in 2 hours.
