I've heard using ledges from Devil's Peak, and the India Venster down Table to get to Lion's Head is good, but that it's really difficult to follow the ledges path? Can anyone describe the path leading from Devil's to Table? Thanks!

I have no experience on TMNP hiking trails, but until a more experienced mite comes along, here are some links to useful info.
