Seven Hollows Trail at Petit Jean State Park (Conway County near Morrilton) is a first-rate hike that features a natural bridge, a grotto waterfall, an a lot of unique views with diverse plant life ranging from ferns to cacti.
The trail takes its name from the seven small streams that run through the area, all of which have carved their own hollows.
The official trail length is 4.5 miles. (Mike’s gps calculation puts it closer to 4.1 miles.) The short spur to the grotto (with seasonal waterfall) adds .2 miles.
It is a loop trail that follows through four of the seven hollows and along ridges between the hollows. Bluff lines, tumbling water (in spring), and interesting plant life are abundant.
It is a vigorous hike with an elevation change of about 360 feet. Most of the climbing is on the second half of the loop.
This is a great hike with a lot to observe, and every part of the hike is scenic.
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.
