Things to Do at Devil's Millhopper

Devil's Millhopper Geological State Park offers many fun things to do for local and out of town visitors. Make sure the park will be open when you plan to visit - check out the park hours before finalizing your plans.

There is a 1/2 mile nature trail that runs around the top edge of the sinkhole. This is an easy hike on a cleared trail, and you will come across a boardwalk system that descends to the bottom of the Devil's Millhopper sinkhole. Here are some typical statistics on the trail: grade 0.9%, cross slope 0.6%, surface type soil.

You are welcome to bring your pets to the park in the picnic area and nature trail, as long as they are on a six foot leash. The picnic area offers convenient tables for picknicking, and pets are welcome in this area.

The Park Ranger offers a guided walking tour every Saturday at 10:00 am. If you are bringing a group to the park and would like a special tour, contact the park at 386-462-7905.

The visitor center has many fun and informative exhibits, as well as an interesting audio-visual program. Wildlife viewing is available throughout the park. Commonly sited animals include squirrels, rabbits, birds, reptiles, and amphibians.
