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.)

Fuzzybutt Falls (Richland Creek Wilderness, Ozark Forest)

Fuzzybutt Falls (southwest Searcy County, Ozark National Forest) is a waterfall that I’ve always heard about (mostly because of the name) but had no idea what a great, easy hike it is to get to with a lot of bang for your buck along the way.

The hike, most of which is in the Richland Creek Wilderness, takes you by three waterfalls, follows along Falling Water Creek (one of my favorites) and ends at a great canyon with a uniquely named 16-foot waterfall that will definitely create a memorable experience.

Falls along Big Creek, Ozark National Forest

In 2014, we hiked down to Big Creek Cave Falls (Newton County, Ozark National Forest) in what was one of our favorite hikes/bushwhacks we have ever done. The hike includes a stream that comes right out of a cave, a 29-foot tall waterfall that comes out of a cave, and another waterfall along Big Creek which is also beautiful. (See the post on that hike here.)

We went back to the area last year because, well, it’s just that good. And because I had found out that there was yet another waterfall on this hike–Wolf Creek Falls–and wanted to check it out.
