Devil's Den State Park is nestled deep in Lee Creek Valley, a picturesque setting in northwest Arkansas's Ozarks Mountains, ancient sedimentary mountains renowned for their natural beauty and lush oak-hickory forest. This Ozark valley was selected as a park site in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). The CCC used native materials to craft the parks rustic-style wood and stone structures. This work includes an impressive native stone dam that spans Lee Creek in the heart of the park forming peaceful eight-acre Lake Devil. Rental canoes, tandem kayaks, pedal boats, and water bikes are available at the park.

Excellent. Quite difficult. Lots of loose rock,creeks were drying and it was hot! Junction Camp was beautiful. Hiked it clockwise. I would rate it strenuous if I were asked. Hiked 9/16-17/2017

This trail truly combines with several others hence the fact that it can be 3, 4 or 5 plus in total length. I agree with another review that it is confusing as it is not really marked by the name of the trail. If you start on the East side of the camping area rather than on the north where the trailhead seems to begin and continue to stay to the right at every fork, you will hike the longest distance of 5.6 miles. You will hike the Outlaw Loop, Racers Hill and Sawmill Loop which I think make up Fossil Flats?? There are orange bike blazes throughout since it is primarily a bike trail.

Great small hike been hiking at Devil's Den all my life never knew it was there great Trail

It was a nice enough trail, but unfortunately the caves are closed and have been for some time. Apparently they are closed because the bats which occupy them are infected and despite my understanding that there is a cure, the National Park Service in Arkansas has not taken the steps to correct the problem which has existed for more than a year. Disappointed to say the least.

I loved this trail! It was a beautiful hike and greatly shaded for those hot days. A decent incline to keep your heart rate up, plus a nice pay off with the overlook for a photo op. Plus it's only 3 miles so it's short enough to take beginner hikers or children! Overall loved the experience.

Hiked a couple of different section of this trail, but haven't completed the entire loop. The trail is very rocky, with lots of ups and down in the terrain. Need to pay attention to the trail markers, or you could easily end up on a horse trail or other trail that crosses the Butterfield.
Some neat areas with nice overlooks, and cool rock formations.

One of my favorite hikes in this area. Good bit of traffic, but beautiful view at the top. Take lunch and enjoy. Many folks hike up to the view and right back. The trail does loop and is a nice wooded path. Get a map in the visitors center and enjoy the whole loop. Have fun.
