  • This is a short, steep trail, but provides railings at least some of the time to hold onto when climbing over rocks. The effort is well worth it, as the views from the top are spectacular!  more »
  • We loved it and did it with a 3 and 4.5 year old. It’s really worth the short time for the great view. It was also good practice for the kids as it wasn’t far but had some different terrain...  more »
  • This is a great, short hike off the Blue Ridge Parkway. You can park at the Devil's Courthouse overlook, then follow the trail to the short (about half a mile), steep hike up to ~5,700 feet, with...  more »

  • Great views! Is a bit of a hike. Good exercise. Uphill going in.
  • Unbelievable majestic view (here and at the numerous overlooks along the way)! Worth the trip, but realize that public facilities are are sparse on the Blue Ridge Parkway. There are facilities about 2 or 3 miles west of the Devil's Courthouse.
  • A tough but short hike. The views are well worth the effort.
  • Really cool, worth the trip. The hike isn't much in terms of distance, but it is steep and the terrain gets a little harsh in the last portion. Not dangerous by any means, but just know that it is not a "walk in the park". We went on a day when it was sunny at first, but weather changes very quickly up there...by the time we got back down to leave, cloud mists were blowing through and it was raining like crazy. The view on this day was obscured by nearly total cloud cover. Still worth it. Enjoy.
  • Had some things in my head and in my heart. Went there to let it go and that's where it is. I left it there. Great place, beautiful,
