Devil’s Courthouse Trail

Short but strenuous, Devils Courthouse features a panoramic summit with views of four states.

After traveling about a half a mile to the summit on a mostly-paved trail, you’ll come to beautiful panoramic mountain view of North Carolina, Tennessee, South Carolina and Georgia. Don’t miss a chance to visit this trail during the fall as the mountain is home to rare and beautiful high-altitude plants.
