Paved trail make this an easy hike for most although it's at about a 30 degree grade uphill. The views on a clear day extend forever. However, there are too many idiots that cross the overlook and venture out onto the rocks face. Please stay...More

We stopped here for a quick lunch break in the parking lot after Graveyard Fields. There is one picnic table. Spectacular view. We did not do the hike, but such a great place to just stop and view the scenery!

This is just a 1 mile hike, not suitable for very adventurous people. The roads are quite steep and it had proper roads (not walking on grass or mud). Sadly when we are there, it was very foggy. However, the fog manage to clear up...More

Beautiful views, but a steep climb to get there. We had 6 children in our group ranging in ages from 20 months to 9 years old. Strollers not a good idea (take it from us), but would definitely suggest a baby carrier for infants/toddlers. Older...More

Visited here with my wife and loved it! It’s a beautiful hike to the top, we are not super athletes by any stretch and it took us about 20 minutes. The hike is steep in places but there are benches in trail to rest. This...More

We love driving on the Blue Ridge Parkway, and Devil's Courthouse never ceases to amaze us. Beautiful all 4 seasons! Close to Sylva, NC and Asheville...sometimes it's best to take the road less travelled and see the sights!

The hike to the top only takes about 10 minutes and it is a steep hike so be aware... not too hard to do, but you'll definitely feel it! :) Once you're there, it's breathtaking. My granddaughter says it's even better than Mt Mitchell (to...More
