Waterfalls in Florida?

It’s true; there really are waterfalls in the Sunshine State. Some are man made, like the Japanese gardens close to Jupiter Beach. Others are naturally occurring waterfalls. With things shut down for awhile, we haven’t been able to visit Devils Millhopper State Park, a geological marvel created by a large sinkhole. It should be open by July. We were able to visit a county park, a little hidden gem near Lake City, in Columbia County. It’s called Falling Creek Falls. The waterfall is about 10 feet tall, but it’s still a beautiful site. The water here is the color of tea due to tannins from things like acorns. The path to waterfall overlook is a short quarter mile (seemed like less) over a wooden boardwalk. The park has restrooms and picnic tables. There’s a historic church there was well. It’s boarded up, so only the outside is available for photo ops. The surrounding area has several state parks including Big Shoals, the only class III rapids in Florida on the Suwannee River. It hadn’t been raining much, so we’ll save that long trek for another day. We certainly encourage a stop in Lake City to explore this unique waterfall at Falling Creek.
