Devil's Courthouse

View of Devil's Courthouse

Blue Ridge Parkway, NC


Devil's Courthouse Trail is a very strenuous walk to the peak and back.  To the peak it is a very steep uphill grade, offering the occasional bench to sit on to rest weary legs.  A large portion of the trail is paved.  However, for those daring enough exert the energy, the view at the peak on a clear day is a beautiful one and allows for almost a 360 degree view of the surrounding valley.
