Beautiful and easy hike to waterfalls. About an hour drive to trailhead. Very quaint town of Flat Rock and Carl Sandburg home very close by.

In Cherokee lore, this cave is the private dancing chamber and dwelling place of the slant-eyed giant, Judaculla. Devil’s Courthouse provides habitat for a variety of rare, high-altitude plants. Some of these alpine species may be remnants from the last glacial period. Hawks, ravens, vultures, eagles, and peregrine falcons ride the hot air currents that rise from the valley.”
