Devils Knob Trail

Distance: 0.6 miles

Blaze Color: Red-Yellow

Difficulty Level: MODERATE

Key Features: highest elevation, winter views, rocky footing

A detailed map of all of the trails within Wintergreen maintained by the foundation is available at the front desk of Wintergreen Resort's Mountain Inn and at Trillium House.

The trail begins at the west corner of the Blue Ridge Overlook on Devils Knob Loop. The rock areas are called catoctin greenstone. Note the natural “gardens” along the rock faces and crevices. During the spring, small flowered phacelia and saxifrage (white flowers in the rock crevices) are in full bloom, blanketing many parts of the trail. Bird watching and views of Pond Hollow and Fortunes Ridge are the treats of this rocky-footed hike. Use caution in winter.
