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.

Enjoyed the scenery from start to finish. The views from the rock are beautiful. Trail was easy to navigate. Nice surprise near the trailhead where a large crack/opening along the rock embankment in which very cool air seeped out. Refreshing on a hot day!

Loved visiting this place. Camped, hiked, admired the waterfall.

Spectacular trail. Intense ascension at front end but well worth the caves, waterfalls, and beautiful terrain!

If you only have time for one hike while at Devil's Den...this is it!!! We hiked from campground loop E using the Woody Trail and then onto Lake Trail and hit this one at the trailhead located by Lee Creek. When you come to the split in the trail, stay right to see the most magnificent view! WOW!!!

We took this trail on starting at the trailhead and working clockwise. The first 3 miles are intense, but going clockwise is the best/easiest way. The overlook recommended after mile 13 is NOT worth the extra side hike. We did the entire trail in 8 hours. There were a ton of spiders so either plow through or grab a stick. If you don't have time to hike all of it, I highly recommend parking at the Holt Road trailhead and going into mile 6 (would be a total of only 6 miles round trip). This will let you see the beautiful overview around mile 4 and Quail Valley. Be warned that returning from this small excursion is pretty much uphill. Great hiking trail!!! Make sure you get a permit even if you're not doing the entire trail.
