Welcome to Devil's Millhopper Geological State Park
In the midst of north Florida's sandy terrain and pine forests, a bowl-shaped cavity 120 feet deep leads down to a miniature rain forest. Small streams trickle down the steep slopes of the limestone sinkhole, disappearing through crevices in the ground. Lush vegetation thrives in the shade of the walls even in dry summers. A significant geological formation, Devil's Millhopper is a National Natural Landmark that has been visited by the curious since the early 1880s. Researchers have learned a great deal about Florida's natural history by studying fossil shark teeth, marine shells and the fossilized remains of extinct land animals found in the sink. Visitors can enjoy picnicking and learn more about this sinkhole through interpretive displays.  Spring has arrived at the Devil's Millhopper.  Although new vegetative growth is responding to the warmer temperatures, it is still easy to see and hear the many small waterfalls cascading down the slopes of the sinkhole.  The mornings are still crisp, but the afternoons are comfortable and are the ideal time to traverse the stairway.
