Hiked here, went on the sink trails. This was very interesting. Huge sink holes throughout the woods. Many informative signs that explain the formations. Make sure to bring your deet.

With the migrating birds heading north, have a camera and binoculars ready. Trails are well maintained and good for those who prefer hiking on a rather level terrain.
