Judaculla Rock is one of the most fascinating roadside attractions in North Carolina. Why? Probably because no one knows the real story behind it. Is it the work of aliens? Cherokee Indians?

Judaculla Rock is covered with hundreds of petroglyphs, etchings on the rocks that resemble... well, I don't really know what they resemble. If I did, I could probably crack the code of the rock and figure out what this ancient civilization was trying to say. Scientists estimate that these petroglyphs could date to 3,000 B.C. The rock is named after a slant-eyed giant who lived in the Devil's Courthouse. Rumor has it there is at least one other similar rock nearby.

The area has a spiritual, serene feeling. We visited Judaculla Rock after it had been vandalized and were pleased to see that it had been cleaned up. Still, you would think something like this would be fenced off better or at least be under some sort of covering to help prevent some of the erosion.

  1. When I saw it back in the mid 80's it had a tin shed built over it.
    If something is not done it is sure to erode away.
