The Devil’s Den Self-Guided Trail (Devil’s Den State Park, southern Washington County, Ark.) is one of the coolest state park trails in Arkansas. The rock formations and the seasonal waterfall on this short trail are wonderful.
It’s not a difficult trail. It’s about 1.2 miles long, and there’s not much of an elevation change (about 100 feet).
(At present, the namesake Devil’s Den Cave is closed to the public due to white-nose syndrome.)
Yellow Rock Trail at Devil’s Den State Park (southern Washington County, Arkansas) is one of my favorite trails. This 3.1-mile semi-loop hike has beautiful views and wonderfully interesting and scenic rocks formations.
The trail is a semi-loop with two major spurs. The opening half-mile spur connects then to a largely triangular-shaped loop.
At the west end of the loop, there is a .3-mile spur over to the CCC Overlook. Including travelling both spurs, the hike length is 3.1 miles.
It’s a moderately challenging hike with some significant climbing and an elevation change of about 400 feet.
For my money, the highlights of the hike are: (1) the Yellow Rock bluff; (2) the CCC Overlook; and (3) the cool rock formations in the initial spur.
