Description

Devil’s Den Self Guided Trail has something pawsome to see around every corner. Located in the Devil’s Den State Park, this trail is set in the typical Ozark Mountain setting of a cool shady forest with funky rock formations. It is one of the highlights of the park; both two legged and four legged visitors love checking out all this trail has to offer.

The trail begins with a short descent down a stone staircase. Once on the loop, enjoy strolling through the beautiful wooded area. After a short climb, Devil’s Den Cave comes into view. Unfurtunately, both of the trail’s caves are closed due to White Nose Syndrome, a fungus infecting the bat population, but you can get a good look at the cave’s entrance from trail. The trail then passes some crevices. To be on the safe side, keep your pooch close and away from the openings. Walk a bit further to the Devil’s Icebox, a cave that blasts out cold air. Although you can’t go in the cavern, you and your pup can cool down with the natural air conditioner before moving on. 

Twin Falls is the trail’s last feature. The flow of the falls fluctuates throughout the year and is at its peak after a generous rainfall. Even when it’s just a trickle it is still beautiful.

The park’s Visitors Center is near the trailhead. It’s open from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m., except during the summer when it stays open until 8:00 p.m. Here you’ll find bathrooms and water. Be sure to fill up your water bottles before heading out on the hike. There are plenty of beautiful spots to stop for a drink and snack with your dog. Help keep the area clean and pick up after your pooch. This hike will definitely make your pup one happy hound!
