Wiregrass Trail is aptly named for it offers visitors a close inspection of the Florida grass.

Wiregrass Trail begins near the park's main attraction, the large 100' x 20' sink hole with a falls dropping 67' to an undetermined location. The trail travels north of the boardwalk through a sparse pine flatwoods which provides the perfect environment for the wiregrass and a variety of wildflowers. As you hike the trail, which ends at the swimming and fishing lake, you'll pass an old oil well site. This was once believed to be the landowner's black gold windfall. Unsuccessful drilling left behind this relic that the park eventually inherited. Campers and other hikers share the 2-acre lake.

Directions: From Chipley, FL, Travel south along State Route 77 several miles. Turn left (east) onto Route 77A to reach the park. To hike the Wiregrass Trail, park in the main lot along the main park road. A paved walkway leads to the trailhead.
