Hot Springs National Park, Arkansas, United States
Hell's Half Acre
The area of land (allegedly more around one to two acres) is a bit of a mystery to residents in nearby Hot Springs, Arkansas.  Despite being completely surrounded by forest and vegetation, this section is completely composed of sharp jagged rocks and no vegetation (aside from the few trees that appear in the satellite photo).  The place is reportedly feared by locals and even the hunting dogs and some believe that the devil lurks below.  Geologists are said to be baffled and theories range from an extinct volcano (that warms the hot springs in the area) to a vortex that has trapped fallen angels who await their release on the final Day of Judgement.

In the same general area lies a deep black hole.  The legend that surrounds it has it as a bottomless hole where a demon has been trapped.  Those that pass by night report hearing its groans and shrieks of profanity.  As such, people tend to stay away at night.

Getting There
A road that led to this location has since been converted to public land.  Another direction in is provided by the first site below, but it is reputedly a treacherous hike.  If you decide to go, you might want to check with the Hot Springs officials to verify that this is open to the general public.

Do Not Trespass!!! I was there today and was escorted out by an angry landowner with a smoking gun. If you're not worried about getting shot, go for it... He suggested I tell others to keep off unless they have permission. There is a home just west of the "Holy Spirit Loop trail," definitely stop and ask "Moby" for permission. You shouldn't have trouble getting it. He hates trespassers. It is a pretty cool place and I plan on returning.

at the very top, as well as a small cave to the right of you. once youve reached the smalle cave your there. Its really no big deal. Also, the "deep black hole" isnt so deep anymore, its been filled up . So its really nothing special

the narrow dirt road goes down into an old creek bed, that has a small water bridge. you take that up the hill and drive until you see the wood pile. There is a sign that states "Tresspasers will be shot" dont mind it. follow the trail up the mountain for about 10-15 minutes. Theres a clearing

Hells half acre is honestly a waste of time. Some friends and I went up there a few nights ago. Its not that hard to find really. You go out near magic springs, and you find a road called "holy spirit rd" or something like that, then you follow it down. Turn left at like the 3rd narrow dirt road.

I live on sleepy valley road and hell's half acre is like 5 or 6 miles from my house through the woods and i know how to get there from every direction and i also know where a trail is.
