A black-and-yellow lichen moth (Lycomorpha pholus) on white crownbeard (Verbesina virginica) was seen on a Devil’s Den State Park trail. White cornbread is also called frosted because it forms frost flowers in the fall when a sudden overnight freeze causes its stems to burst with sap that freeze into ribbons.
Devil's Den State Park is an Arkansas state park located in the Lee Creek Valley of the Boston Mountains in the Ozarks. Devil’s Den State Park contains one of the largest sandstone crevice areas in the U.S. The park contains many geologic features, including crevices, caves, rock shelters, and bluffs. The park is also known for its well-preserved Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) structures built in the 1930s. These structures, still in use today, include cabins, trails, a dam, and a shelter.
Devil’s Den State Park has approximately 64 miles of trails popular with hikers, mountain bikers, and horseback riders. One popular trail is the Devil’s Den Self-Guided Trail (1.5 miles long) which passes by Devil’s Den Cave (550 feet), Devil’s Den Ice Box, numerous rock crevices, and Twin Falls. Another popular trail is the Yellow Rock Trail (3.1 miles) which leads to expansive views of the Lee Creek Valley.
