WASHINGTON COUNTY (KFSM) -- As the leaves change colors and the temperatures drop, more people are stepping outside to enjoy Arkansas scenery.

From riding motorcycles to hiking, people are finding ways to enjoy the outdoors.

"We just love coming down here," Devil's Den State Park visitor Susan Collins said. "We do it once or twice a month and bring our dogs and just hike."

They said their secret outdoor getaway isn't such a secret anymore.

"There's a lot of people," Collins said. "It used to not be this way, so we had a hard time finding a parking spot."

The couple has been coming to Devil's Den for 30 years and said their fall visits are their favorite.

"It'll be beautiful in a couple more weeks," Collins said, "We'll be back down here to get some pictures, walk, and look at the beautiful fall leaves. It's beautiful down here."
