My grandson and I stopped by to hike the Devil's Hall Trail on our way to Carlsbad, NM. The day was a little warm but fortunately we had a slight breeze and some clouds; however we each drank about 2 liters of water on our 4 mile trek. The trailhead area is good and cold water and clean restrooms are available. The early trail is well marked and easily followed until getting to the dry creek bed and boulders. From there on the trail is more strenuous. All warnings about hats etc. are spot on because there is little shade. The Devil's Hall between rock walls and the rock steps up to it are quite interesting. We would like to hike this area in the fall. If you are seeking something spectacular save your energy for Carlsbad Caverns; if you enjoy hiking this is a nice trail. When returning to the parking area it is easy to miss the trail away from the creek bed so check landmarks as you leave the path onto the wash so you will recognize it on the way back.
