BRP Ranger hike to Devil's Courthouse

Join Blue Ridge Parkway rangers tomorrow at 10 a.m. for a short but steep half-mile hike to the summit of Devil's Courthouse. The summit, which sits at an elevation of 5,720 feet, offers 360-degree views and allows you to see into four states on a clear day.

The one-to-two hour roundtrip hike will start at the Devil's Courthouse Overlook (Milepost 422.4). Hikers should bring water and be prepared for unpredictable mountain weather.

For more information, call 828-298-5330, ext. 304.
