Devil's Millhopper Geological State Park was known for it's celebration and appreciation of the natural ecosystem. It provided a location for field trips for young students to learn about nature, a good place for workouts due to the steep steps descending into the sinkhole, and a gorgeous date spot.
However, because of Hurricane Irma in 2017, these monumental stairs, the boardwalk, and a portion of the ecosystem were destroyed. While the walking trails have remained open to the public for awhile now, people still awaited the reopening of the boardwalk. Over the past 20 months, efforts to restore the boardwalk have succeeded and it is officially open again with more safety features on the steps, allowing the community to once again admire the beauty of the park.
