The Devil's Den Trail has wet weather water falls, a cave, and some unusual rock formations. It's a beautiful, family friendly hike that you can do again and again.

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'm sure this trail is better in spring or fall, but hiking the whole thing in August heat was a bit much. There were few overlooks and locations for water. The trail needed maintence. Several markers were on fallen trees or were obscured by vines.

Speaking of vines ... I really got hit with poison ivy, oak or something because of overgrowth along the trail and times I missed a marker and wandered off. Downloading the Alltrails map was really helpful in getting back on track.

Hiking this in the fall with someone and making it an overnight would be much more enjoyable. Hiking the entire trail alone on one hot August day was probably not the wisest of decisions.

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