Coming from Boise, take the first mountain home exit. Turn right onto Old Oregon Trail Hwy and take another right. This will take you past a Chevron station. Be sure to go past the Chevron station, because both roads have the same name. Follow that road until you come to Cinder Butte Road. Go across the rail road tracks, and take an immediate right through a gated road. Follow that road for about 4000 feet. The cave will be to your right. If you hit Smith's Crack you have gone to far.

Devil's Hole (or Hell's Kitchen) is part of the "Smith's Crack" caving system. There are many different caves in the area, but not all have been documented yet. Devil's Hole is basically a 300 yard decent into the earth. There is one forty foot shaft at the entrance of the cave, that would require a rope to descend. The cave requires some experience in climbing. It is a nice intermediate cave. The cave is often wet and muddy, even in the dry season. As implied by its name, once you get to the bottom, you have to climb back out. Be careful.
