Super cool geological formations
The Leon Sinks are close to my parents house and I am so lucky for that! I love to take my son when we visit for a day of exploring. It's never crowded, and such a beautiful, quiet gem. We love hiking, seeing the plants, and of course the unique and gorgeous sinks. Depending on the time of year (I prefer the Fall), they are a deep blue/green color). Last time we went they were getting ready to build new boardwalks so check ahead of time before visiting. Also there can be a lot of mosquitos, make sure to put bug spray on.

Great, easy hike
2019年3月 • 夫妻情侣
The main hike can be a bit long for beginners (I think it pushed about 3 miles) but it's a great way to spend a few hours. The trails are pretty well maintained but there were two areas that were closed due to needed maintenance so that was a bit disappointing. Otherwise though great spot to check out and the entrance fee was only $3 bucks.

Hike, see nature, enjoy outdoors!
2019年1月 • 夫妻情侣
Easy to find off 319 near Crawfordville, $3 fee, nice parking, clean restrooms. Easy to read trails, most are flat, small hills when u hike the path down to some of the sinks. Becareful on boardwalk area, one had broken boards, holes in floor, missing step. Boardwalk across swam closed, water was at the boardwalk. Very nice hike w lots of nature. Only negative was the constant buzz of planes, helicopters flying overhead, must be on airport flight plan. Sinks are beautiful, whirlpools in streams!

North Florida Gem
2019年1月 • 夫妻情侣
My wife and I traveled to Leon Sinks Geological Area within Apalachicola National Forest to do some hiking. We have hiked most of the trails in the area. The Sink Trail is a 3 mile loop trail which travels through the woods and by many wet and dry sinks. Numerous spur trails along the main trail lead to overlooks, boardwalks, and hidden sinks. There are many interpretive boards which detail the geology, flora, and fauna in each area. Big Dismal Sink was the deepest and most impressive sink. The sink at Natural Bridge featured a rotating pool of water where Fisher Creek briefly dips underground before bubbling up on the other side. The variety of geological formations in such a small area was impressive! I strongly recommend visiting Leon Sinks!

Easy hiking to multiple swamps and sinkholes. Wasn’t crowded at all with plenty of parking. $3 parking fee. Nice bathroom amenities at the trailhead.

Big Dismal & Little Dismal
2017年8月 • 好友
When I was a teenager we swam in all these sinkholes. I have grandkids now and wish they could too. We would drive straight up to the holes and TRY to find a parking spot on a hot Summer Sunday afternoon and all our friends would already be there swimming. I have such great memories going around to all the holes swimming. Cherokee was my favorite! I gave it a 3 on the review. If I could jump in and swim it would be a 5!

Swamps and Sinkholes
2018年3月 • 独自旅游
Leon Sinks Geological Area is a recreation area in Apalachicola National Forest just a few miles south of Tallahassee. Parking is right off US-319 between Tallahassee and Crawfordville. There is a day use fee payable at a self-serve kiosk, so bring exact change. About 5 miles of hiking trails lead throughout the area past sinkholes, swamps and caves. The area is very flat and so the hiking is easy. The Sinkhole Trail leads past a dozen or so sinkholes. There are both wet and dry sinkholes here. The wet sinkholes are deeper, reaching the water table and filling with groundwater. For safety, swimming in the sinkholes is prohibited. Cave divers have explored the underwater caves, mapping 28 miles. The caves connect to Wakulla Springs forming one of the known largest underwater cave systems in the world. Hammock Sink was my favorite as it was filled with beautiful aquamarine water. Big Dismal is the largest of the sinkholes and Gopher Hole is more of a cave than a sinkhole. Gum Swamp Trail leads past several swamps with cypress and tupelo gum trees in the southern part of the recreation area. Crossover Trail bisects the two to shorten the loop. Overall, a great place for an easy hike and learn about the fascinating geology of the area.

Nice easy hike.
The hike was easy to do with young kids. I wouldn't say it is an amazing sight to see once you get there but it's a nice thing to do on a free day.

Scout trip

We had a great day at Leon Sinks. Cub scouts needed to go complete a 3 mile hike. We started at the parking area which was really nice with picnic tables and bathroom. We then walked the trail. It was around 3.7 miles.

Interesting Geological Site
2017年10月 • 夫妻情侣
Spent about 2 hours hiking around this very interesting area. We viewed about 10 sink holes but Big Dismal was the most dramatic and well worth the hike (about 2 miles in) There are dry and wet sink holes. The whole trail is approximately 4 1/2 miles and is moderate to a bit difficult. We used insect repellent and did not have a problem with mosquitoes.
