The Florida Ridge Hills are a small ridge of hills made of rock and mud that are found in the Florida panhandle, Southwest Georgia, and Southeast Alabama.

Access[edit]

The hills in the range vary from 50 feet above sea level to 300 feet above sea level, and include Britton Hill, the highest point in Florida and the lowest highpoint of any state in the United States.

Most of the hills' easiest access is paved road or a short trail hike no more than 5 miles.

Impact on Florida's elevation[edit]

Because of Florida's flat land, and low elevation, these hills give way to one of only two sub-piedmont areas in Florida. The other is in North Central Florida and Central Florida, consisting of a small range of hills stretching from Ocala to Kissimmee. Most of the hills range from 50–150 feet.
