Along with the Yellow Rock Trail, the Devil’s Den Self-Guided Trail is a trail you must see when visiting Devil’s Den State Park (southern Washington County, Ark.). There are wonderful rock formations and a great seasonal waterfall on this 1.2-mile trail.
It is not a difficult walk. The elevation change is only about 100 feet.
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.)
The Alum Cove Natural Bridge Trail (near Deer, Newton County, Arkansas, Ozark National Forest) is a relatively short 1.2-mile hike that provides a lot of great features including a couple of waterfalls, a cave, a small stream, and the highlight, the Alum Cove Natural Bridge.
This is a family-friendly destination with a lot of bang for your hiking effort.
I first hiked Alum Cove several years ago, and the area was not in great condition due to some winter storm damage at the time.
At our recent visit in May 2016, it was in much better condition.
