if you've got the legs, hike to the bottom and if you've really got the legs, hike back up to the top, and if you've really really got the legs, hike on the trails at the top of the entrance

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 another activity in the area.

We visited on a Saturday and found parking to be easy despite the park being crowded. The fee is payable via honor box so bring exact change. There are vending machines if needed. A park ranger is available to answer questions during posted hours.

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

I really enjoyed the scenery especially the stair boardwalk and sinkhole. Small park within the city limits of Gainesville quite interesting once inside you will find it quite enjoyable.

The hub and I visited this State park. It is truly beautiful and amazing. This park has an "honor" system in which you pay $4 and place the pymt amount in an envelope. The trails are straightforward and walking down the stairs to the sinkhole is a truly amazing. Be advised you can't go within the sinkhole itself. Also residents who live close by use the stairway to exercise. I suggest you use/bring mosquito repellent. Also wear comfy clothing and shoes. A hat/sunscreen is a must. You are not allowed to take water/liquid into the sinkhole area.
