A smooth, level, and winding trail through the woods, and an interpretive trail with sinkholes.

Features Birding · Spring · Swimming · Wildlife

Open from 8:00 a.m. to sundown, 365 days a year. There is a $6 entrance fee for cars, though this also gets you access to all the trails, and of course swimming in the springwater and manatee viewing in the winter during cold snaps.

Description

The Sink Hole Trail is a great, generally level hike to do once or do loops on if visiting Manatee Springs State Park. There are also approximately 8.5 miles of trail throughout the state park, mostly on dirt roads. The Sink Hole Trail weaves between sink holes with several interpretive signs to inform you about the process of karst limestone topography and sink holes. The interpretive signs and trail markers go in a clockwise direction, but the trail could be taken in either direction.
