Near West Fork, the Devils Den State Park is nestled deep in a picturesque Ozark valley where you can explore caves, crevices and bluff overlooks. The mountain stream forms a peaceful 8-acre lake before cascading over a native stone dam. Hiking and backpacking trails access backcountry areas of the park and the surrounding Ozark National Forest.

The Devils Den State Park has 20 miles of trails. Yellow Horse Trail is an easy 5 mile route. The Red Trail (aka Holt Ridge Trail) is 7 miles and can be steep. The Green Trail (aka Vista Point) is 8 miles, runs some ledges and has a gorgeous view of the whole valley.

To reach the trailhead from US540, use the West Fork Highway 170 exit.

To reach the Horse Camp from West Fork, go south on I-540 for 7.8 miles. Go west on SR 74 for about 8.5 miles. Note: Large trailers should be careful on SR74 due to steep and winding roads. The Horse Camp will be on the left, past the main campground.

Overall, Devils Den State Park is the 5th most popular horse trail of all 10 horseback rides in Arkansas.
