Beautiful walk along the bluffs above roaring river. Devil's Kitchen's name is derived from an odd rock outcrop that formed a roomlike enclosure. According to legend, this room, which has since collapsed, was used as a hideout by Civil War guerrillas. This is a beautiful, brisk walk around the bluffs at roaring river, with limestone bluffs, ledges, caves and springs. It is considered by many to be a favorite walk around the park and offers a wide variety of flora and fauna native to the area. Fishing is good so do not forget to grab your pole along with your gps and stay a while and enjoy the great outdoors here.
Really enjoyed this one, will do it again.
Great Trail! Beautiful in the Fall. Not too long, not too short. Has some really cool rocks to climb around on. I like to get to the top of one and just sit and take it all in.
Really enjoyed this trail. Some neat rock climbing areas. Definitely would hike this trail again.
Completed this trail several years back while visiting the fish hatchery. A very pretty area. The trail is steep in sections, and a cool cave with some cool history.
Good hike for the family.
One of my favorite trails this is a great Park to hike in some places were a little steep getting Around but this is a great place for peace and quiet and to do some thinking to clear your mind and Devils kitchen area are some really fascinating looking rocks I would recommend this to everyone
Love this trail! A bit of hills but worth it for the creek, caves, rocks and beauty. We like to hike it counter clockwise. My kids began hiking it around ages 5 & 7. Bring water and a snack.
Did this trail on the with our Boy Scouts as part of the 1st Day hike. (Jan 1st) State park staff lead the hike. Great trail, went counter clockwise, was an easier trip. Really liked that there are caves on the trail. And the Boys loved climbing around on the Kitchen area.
Great for kids and new hikers. A little exploring is available and overall easy trail.
Fairly easy trail for most ages. Not one that I would recommend driving any distance to visit. If you're new to hiking or are worried about your physical condition, this may be the one for you. There is some elevation change as to be expected by any trail in the Ozarks.
Great, scenic, relatively easy trail.
Not paved. Very muddy after rain. Couple of little caves. Lots of uphill.
Not crowded (even though there was a fishing event occurring at the trout stream beside the trail head when visited).
Nice short hike at the park, good break from the fishing, nice rock formations
Great trail that's a moderate hike. There are a lot of finger trails that break off of it and lead to more hiking. Lots of photo opportunities as well. I would recommend it.
Good hiking trail with great views to photograph
Hiked this trail today also it was a great day out.
My wife and I decided to drive up to Roaring River to go on some trails. I hadn't been there in several years, but it was just like I remembered it. We had a lot of fun on this one. It has some elevation change, but nothing too strenuous. It is a shame that the kitchen collapsed. What a neat piece of history.
