“Bad timing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2014 via mobile

Toured in the fall. The path is well built and kept tidy but the foliage was pretty much non existent most likely because plants were out of season. Check back in the summer

“A Must Go If Your Visiting and A Recurring Visit If Your Living In Town!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

You have to go and see this place. Its nearly free to go (small fee per car) and its breathtaking!!!
I really could not describe it in a way that would do it justice, I remember when people would try to tell me and it did little to justify how amazing it really is...

SO instead some basic info, Its a cash only thing to get in and there are a lot of steps to get to the bottom and those turn into way more difficult steps heading up.

I would say a trip to Devils Millhopper with everything would be 1-2:30 hrs depending on how many pictures you take.

“beautiful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

This is a beautiful sight. A lot of stairs but worth the walk. Just natural Florida, as seen from a raised walkway.

“Amazing natural sinkhole formation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014

Naturalist or not, Devil's Millhopper is worth the visit. It's a breathtaking and awe inspiring sinkhole that displays so much of the area's natural fauna and geology. Well worth the visit. Be sure to bring bug spray and a hat.

“Sure, it's just a big hole, but it's a _special_ big hole”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2014

The Devil's Millhopper is a unique geological site that makes for a nice walk, provided you can handle stairs. On a hot summer's day the temperature difference is startling (and refreshing) and is a break from the urban concrete.

If you've ever wondered why Florida is known for the earth suddenly opening up and swallowing houses, cows, lakes and cars, The Devil's Millhopper will enlighten you.
