Devil's Hall Trail is a 3.7 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near Carlsbad, Texas that offers scenic views and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking, rock climbing, and camping and is accessible from March until November.
This is a decent little hike if you only have a few hours to spend. The hike up the wash is pretty fun. You are in low areas pretty much the whole time so the views are not terribly expansive. Still nice though. The rock formations once you get to the devils hall are great. Some wildlife around if you are quiet. Had a huge mule deer walk within feet of us. It was incredible. Overall a decent enough hike. Certainly not my favorite but would do again.
First half is in the foothills. Second half is up a wash. Fun little hike. Lots of hikers. Seemed to be the hike to do if don't have a lot of time.
This is my favorite trail in Texas. The changing colors in November is amazing. This trail has everything for the hiker, small climbs, single track trails, and wash outs. This is a must for any hiker. Hint: you are not there until you see the blue Devils Hall sign.
Other than climbing to the top of the peaks, I think this is the best trail in the park, Challenging, requires some boulder climbing in the wash, the kids had a good time, All it lacks is the big finish (No waterfall or gorgeous lake) Excels at adding a little more fun with a few slight climbing areas, could get hot if not started early enough, some shade but lots of sun too
I truly enjoy this trail the scenery and terrain changes several times. I've done it 3 times and would do it again
We were at Devil's Hall Trail the first week of November 2012. We enjoyed the rocks, the arroyo and at this time of the year, the beautiful colors of the trees leaves. Walking on the natural rocks steps and see the hall, is something that you can not forget. Easy and not to long, is ideal to hike with the family, kids will have a lot of fun.
A fun, adventurous trail. You'll have to hike up a dry, boulder-filled creek bed to the Hiker's Staircase and Devil's Hall, where the natural rock makes an unusual amount of right angles. Cool sight.
