High in the sand pine/scrub oak forest is the Lake Eaton Sinkhole Trail, winding through palmetto and deer moss to a dry sinkhole about 80 feet deep and 450 feet wide. A choice of three different hiking routes lead to the rim of the sinkhole, where an observation deck allows you to take in the magnitude of this geological feature.
