This hike starts on SR 215 about 1 mile past the parkway. The first stop is at The Devil's Courthouse. Great views all around. Next we backtrack around a third of a mile and continue on the original trail. There are a number of views as you hike above the parkway. Great view of Pilot mountain. The trail joins the Art Lobe for a while and runs into Black Balsam road. Follow it down to the parking area and pickup the trail to Sam's knob just past the restrooms. After eating lunch on top of Sam's knob, head down and pick up the trail to Flat Laurel Creek trail. Follow FLC trail for an easy downhill hike a few miles back out to SR 215. About a quarter mile up the road to the parking area.
