"In notoriously flat Florida, the 6,294-acre Apalachicola Bluffs and Ravines Preserve contains one of Florida’s rare steephead ravines. Steephead ravines are steep, straightsided narrow valleys that usually have a stream of water flowing at the bottom. In the Panhandle, they were formed as Florida gradually emerged from the sea, created by the Apalachicola River, which created a line of high bluffs." Read more

Who would have thought that Florida would have a challenging hiking trail.

This trail leaves a fairly nice parking area and travels out to the bluffs along the Apalachicola River. Great view from the top of the bluffs. We passed a party with a woman in her late 70's, so the trail isn't THAT difficult.
Most definitely take water and look for snakes. We have heard there are copperheads and eastern diamondbacks along the trail. We didn't see any.

Dogs are NOT allowed on the trail.
