I love this location for a good work-out. With a 1/2 mile jogging trail and hundreds of stairs, you'll be sweating in no time. Plus, I don't feel guilty when I take a break to breath in the nature and listen to the water running down into the sinkhole.

Felt like Chevy Chase in Vacation movie. Came from Oregon to Orlando, drove to Gainesville. Got to the gate and learned that this historical site is closed on Monday and Tuesday.

The Millhopper is a sink hole which one gets to by walking down an extensive set of stairs. Its a nice outdoor activity and kids and adults will both find it interesting. The stairs back up might be a bit much for older or less active people.

Interesting hike tot see the sink hole but well worth it! Nice place to everyone to picnic and hike. Lots of stairs but great to see it up close. Easy to get to. Staff friendly! Pets are allowed.

If you want to see what a sink hole looks like, this park is the ticket. It's a large sinkhole with stairs leading to the base. You can see the water flowing in from several directions and returning into Floridan Aquifer. Interesting geologic process and formation. Would recommend it if you're in the area.
