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

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

Only a 20 minute walk! We happen to see people walking beside the Blue Ridge Parkway and wondered where they were going (after coming through a tunnel). We then saw a parking lot on the left. We stopped and then saw people WAY UP on...More
