"According to Cherokee legend, Devils Courthouse is the home of the giant Judaculla, who sat in judgment over the morals of mortals. From the parking lot you can look up at this imposing, impressive rock face, with a summit elevation of 5760 feet, and imagine from its stern, rugged features all sorts of mythical tales."
