Summit path from Parkway  Sucess!

What an awesome little peak! The views are just amazing - 4 states from one place. I loved the little disks for orienting yourself towards surrounding valleys and peaks. Great outing, great leg-stretcher, loved it. I sat up there looking at ALL those other peaks to summit, though, and regretted I was short on time in the area.

From The Parkway To The Summit  Sucess!

Many times. The paved path is pretty steep tho.

Devils Courthouse  Sucess!

Worth the short walk. When I was up there a storm rolled over and I had to hug one of the walls for cover but after it passed it made for a great sunset.

Great  Sucess!

I loved this one although I wonder why someone gave it the name Devil's Courthouse. Anyway, I walked up while my husband jogged. I think I liked walking better. Breeze and view was great at the top though.

Grand view  Sucess!

A fun jog to the top with an incredible view. It was a wonderful discovery for me and my wife while driving on the Blue Ridge Parkway en route to hiking in the Shining Rock Wilderness.

Summit Trail  Sucess!

Hit this one on our way back to our car out on 215. Nice way to finish the day.

great scenery  Sucess!

Great views, easy walk. I believe they closed the cliffs some time ago due to Peregrine Falcon nests.

Summit Trail  Sucess!

I absolutely loved this summit off the BRP! Fantastic weather, the coolest I have been in weeks. It saddens me that this is off limits to climbing.

Very Cold  Sucess!

Made the summit on a very cold day in March. Could see Sam's Knob from the we climb that too!

.5 mile paved trail  Sucess!

Must admit I've encountered some steep trails, but I've never hiked that steep of a paved trail before. The summit was impressive and the view of it is impressive from the parking lot, but the views from the summit weren't the best the parkway has to offer.

DC  Sucess!

Last time I was up I saw one of the Falcons. That was a treat to go along with the great views.

Summit Trail  Sucess!

Been there many times since the above date. Love going on days with low clouds in the valley. Really feels like you're on the edge of the world.

Summit path  Sucess!

We climbed up to the summit on the way back from Chestnut Bald. The views were good but the paves trail to the top is a bit ridiculous because it detracts from the natural surroundings.

Route Climbed: Summit path. Date Climbed: 04-10-2005  Sucess!

I've walked to the summit of Devils Courthouse many times. It's just a short 1/2 mile stroll. This was the first time I'd hiked up since the walls have been closed to climbing. Access to the peak is now strictly limited to the paved trail and the walled area on the summit.
