Description

Hike Devils Well, Cave Spring, Current River Loop to go from Devils Well sinkhole, through the forest and down to the Current River where Cave Spring adds 24 million gallons of water per day to the river.

Short Hike: Floaters on the river can paddle here, but the full experience takes Devils Well, Cave Spring, Current River Loop to see where the water goes down through Devils Well, under the bluff, and out the cave. It is 2.3 miles from trailhead to the cave. The complete loop is 5.5 miles.
