Hike under waterfalls, past deep caves, and along a flowing creek.

The Devil's Den Trail, in Devil's Den State Park, is a haven of vivid green along Lee Creek. This is the perfect hike for families, photographers, and those new to the Ozarks.

The trail is a modest 1 1/2 miles with little elevation gain. In that compact span it weaves past gravity fed seeps, dripping (sometimes rushing) waterfalls, caves that waft cold air from their depths, and the beautiful slate-green waters of Lee Creek.

Begin at the Devil's Den State Park Visitor Center, where you can also stop in for a hiking map. The trail is well maintained, though can be slick with moisture. 

The caves are all closed due to white-nose bat syndrome, but bring a flashlight to check them out from their entrances.

Photographers, be sure to carry a tripod to capture the delicate waterfalls. 

Camping is available in the State Park.
