Looking some adventures to do with your friends? Come and have your First Saturday Hike at Leon Sinks! This is gonna be a fun hiking event in Tallahassee, FL you might want to try!

Event Details

If it is the first Saturday of the month, it is time for a hike at Leon Sinks! We will meet at 10 am in the parking lot and hike the trail together to see the beautiful geological features of the area while walking on wooded hiking trails.
Right off US 319 south of Tallahassee, the Leon Sinks Geological Area contains 5 miles of trails leading to a series of sinkholes big and small. The land in this area is underlain by a layer of limestone, eroded and dissolved by rainwater and groundwater to form caverns, holes, and tunnels. This type of terrain is called "karst" and results in many geological features such as wet sinkholes, depressions, natural bridges and a disappearing stream.
The hikers can either hike the 3.6-mile Sinkhole Trail to view the numerous sinkholes and geological features, or the 2.8-mile Gum Swamp Trail around a cypress and gum swamp.
We recommend wear hiking shoes and bring a water bottle, and consider bug spray or long pants/sleeves.
Bring a lunch and stay after for the Friends of Leon Sinks meeting.
