PATC Map 9. Fare: $20/$25, plus park fee/pass. Departs from 17th & K Sts. and the Vienna Metro. The best times to see the views at Big Devils Stairs are early spring and late autumn, when the trees are bare of foliage. Moderate hikers start at Jenkins Gap, walk for 300 ft. south on Skyline Drive and turn left down the Mount Marshall Fire Road (which becomes Mount Marshall Trail), turn right (south) on the Bluff Trail (frequent views east), and left on the Big Devils Stairs. Hikers descend the Stairs (frequent views east) to the first overlook, then climb back up and turn left onto the Bluff Trail to Gravel Springs Gap. They then follow Skyline Drive for 1/3 mile to Range View Overlook. Long hikers will start at Compton Gap on the AT and hike 2 miles south to Jenkins Gap, where they follow the moderate path. Est.: 11.5–12 miles, 2500–2700’ elevation; 9.5 miles, 2200’ elevation. (VA)
