Includes: Sinkhole Trail, Gumswamp Trail. The term karst refers to a limestone terrain that has been shaped and changed by both rain and groundwater. Although quite pure to drink, rain drops become weakly acidic as they absorb carbon dioxide from the air and from decaying vegetation. This mild acid then has the ability to eat away and dissolve the limestone bedrock that lies under much of Florida. Over time, the large hollows, caves, and fissures created by the erosion may cause the ground surface to collapse, forming a sinkhole or a crater-like depression. The Leon Sinks are situated in the Woodville Karst Plain that extends from Tallahassee to the Gulf of Mexico. The plain is still evolving, which means new sinkholes may appear at anytime.
