A great loop from Devil's Well over first-class singletrack to Cave Spring on the Current River and along the bluff.

Runner Notes

A swim could be an option at the river. There may be many weekend floaters on the river. The bluff view is likely better with leaves off.

Description

The trail starts at the dead-end gravel Devils Well Road, located off of HWY KK to Akers Ferry. Start at Devils Well, then take the loop to see glades, Cave Spring, the Current River, and some bluff views. At 1.7 miles, you can take the Cave Spring Spur Trail out 0.7 miles to see the river and Spring. Then return to continue the loop along the bluff. The first four miles are excellent singletrack through the forest. The last 1.5 miles is a gradual climb up the Ozark hollow where the trail merges on and off doubletrack trail with some ATV use.

Flora & Fauna

Ovenbirds, Hooded Warblers, Wood Thrush, Tanagers and American Redstart. Yellow-breasted Chats, Blue-winged Warblers and Indigo Buntings. Pileated Woodpecker, Wild Turkeys, White-tailed deer and some signs of feral hogs.
