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.

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.

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.

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.
