Florida’s karst terrain offers interesting opportunities to explore

Florida’s karst terrain

Much of our home state rests on limestone, which gradually dissolves in fresh water. Through this natural process, caves, sinkholes, springs, and waterfalls are created.

Even though summer is coming to an end, weekend trips and virtual school field trips may be the perfect reason to explore the highs and lows of Florida’s state parks.

Falling Waters State Park offers scenic views from one of the state’s highest elevation (318 feet) and a 74-foot waterfall. Visitors to Devil’s Millhopper Geological State Park can descend into a 120-foot deep sink hole, which has grown into lush tropical forest with abundant wildlife.
