Devil’s Courthouse from Hwy 215 via the MST
This is a nice hike to Devil’s Courthouse that adds a bit of distance and fewer crowds that starting from the main parking area.
From the MST trailhead on Hwy 215, it is a few miles with moderate climbing before you reach the spur out to Devil’s Courthouse. Look out on the way for a short side trail to the right that leads to some nice views over the Hwy 215/Middle Prong area.
Take a right on the spur to Devil’s Courthouse, stopping for a neat view above the BRP as you cross over a tunnel.
At the top of Devil’s Courthouse you will usually encounter tourist crowds, but the 360° views as far as Georgia make it worth it!
Return the way you came, or combine it with other trails for one of many possible loops.
There is a small parking area on Hwy 215 near the MST crossing. A short road walk may be needed, especially if you do as a loop with Flat Laurel Creek Trail
Great hike for kids, if they can manage the distance and elevation gain.
