We drove along the BRP and came to the milepost with parking to see Graveyard Falls from up top. We were lucky that there was good visibility and we could see it from the overlook. If we'd had more time, we could have hiked down...More

This is hike is fairly easy! From the rhododendron tunnel to the blue berries to the wonderful falls! I have to say this is my favorite hike outside of Asheville!

The walk to the lower Falls was harder than expected. The parking lot and falls were very crowded and overall we weren’t impressed. We would go back to Looking Glass Falls, High Falls and Triple Falls before ever returning here.

We were looking for a 3-4 mile loop trail and found this one. Skip it! The trail is not marked well at all and is basically a pig path. The falls portion was nice, but skip the long trail.

Get there by taking the Blue Ridge Parkway with gorgeous views. The parking lot isn’t huge and this is a popular spot on a hot day so go early. There’s lots of steps. The walk down is easy, the walk back up is all up...More

Wonderful area to take friends, beautiful scenery relatively easy walking, a little more difficult to the Falls themselves.

We really enjoyed our time at Graveyard! The lower falls are a short distance from the parking lot and super fun to climb around. The Graveyard field trail is pretty easy as well. We did a loop from the lot to the lower falls and...More
