This is a half-day hike to a scenic outcrop and narrow chasm with an overnight option at Ritterbush Camp. Looking for an LT adventure without a big mountain climb? This mellow hike to a backcountry pond and intimate magical chasm may be just what you had in mind. Day-trippers can easily accomplish this hike on a summer afternoon, but a primitive camp at the edge of the trail provides another dimension. Only backpackers are able to tour peculiar Devil’s Gulch when the misty gloam of dawn or dusk heightens its eerie spell.
