Hinson Conservation and Recreation Area was completed in 2012 under a partnership between the Florida Trail Association and the City of Marianna. In 2012 the Department of Interior designated Hinson Conservation & Recreation Area as a National Recreational Trail.

The trail head begins at the scenic Chipola River and turns to form a four mile loop around the park passing caves, sink holes and short bluffs along the 226 acres. Birding and wildlife enthusiast love this park for its great spotting. The park is located one mile south of Marianna on Highway 73, open daylight to sundown.
