Summey Cove Trail

At A Glance


2 mi one-way

Difficulty Rating: 2
Steepness: Hilly
Tread Condition: Moderately Rough
Blaze Color: Blue
Trail Number: 129


Extremely poorly designed at NC 215 (east) end. Extremely steep. Rest of trail generally follows old roadbeds; very wet & muddy in places. Provides access to the spectacular Courthouse Falls, which is well worth the few hundred foot side hike down to the base.

Note: the portion of this trail from NC 215 to the Courthouse Falls spur has been slated for closure, and the remainder will be called Courthouse Falls trail. None of it will be open to bikes :(

This trail is located in the Pisgah Ranger District area. For a list of all the trails in that area, see the Pisgah Ranger District trails list page.
