The Devils Breakfast Travel trail is a 2.5 mile on-way trail and currently terminates deep inside Catoosa W.M.A. at the Rain House. From the trailhead, the trail winds on the right side of the road for 0.2 miles before crossing the road and dipping down below the bluff. You now find yourself in Daddy's Creek gorge, rich with rhododendron, and for the next mile you will walk under sheer bluffs and amongst the rock steps laid down by the trail builders. Once again, the given name "a trail of a thousand steps" become apparent here. At 1.2 miles you will rise out of the canyon through an Appalachian cove forest overlooking a ninety foot sheer bluff cut by a cascading stream. Cross the stream and proceed a short distance to the aptly named Blueberry Bluff side trail and continue north 0.75 to a side trail to Morgan's Overlook, offering views of Daddy's to the north. Rejoin the main trail and travel 0.4 miles to the Rain House, so named for the shelter it offered the builders of this trail on many a day. Here the trail ends, with trail work underway down in the gorge of Daddy's Creek as it winds its way steadily north to join the Obed River and connect in with the Nemo Bridge Trail.
