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.

Short hike with a few rock outcroppings that are interesting, but nothing extraordinary.

Great hike but its an uphill climb so be prepared. Nice caves, bluffs and springs. Before you hike pick up a map at the nature center that tells about the numbered sites as well as the other trails at the park. Very well marked and easy to follow.
