Devil’s Millhopper Sinkhole

Devil’s Millhopper Sinkhole was supposed to be my first solo destination, however I got lost and ended up at Devil’s Den instead.  Whoops!

After Devil’s Den, Devil’s Millhopper Sinkhole was easily overshadowed but still a great place to visit!  Imagine a lush rainforest with trickling streams, greenery everywhere you look, and a small wooden path down to a 500 ft. sinkhole laced with vegetation.  Can you picture it?  You’ve arrived at Devil’s Millhopper Sinkhole!

Things To Do

The main reason to visit Devil’s Millhopper Sinkhole is to visit the sinkhole, of course!  The park also has several walking trails, picnic tables, and areas to view wildlife.  There is a 1/2 mile trail which circles the rim of the sinkhole and a 232-step stairway to the bottom (it doesn’t feel that long).

Admission: $4 per vehicle (up to 8 people), $2 pedestrian
