Highlights

  • Devils Courthouse is a huge peak on the Blue Ridge Parkway with the top 200 or so feet on the east side of cliff faces.
  • The trail is a paved path from the parkway to the summit.
  • Rock climbing and rappelling have degraded the cliffs, so these activities are no longer permitted.
