Warning: When we used map link on Tripadvisor it took us to the wrong location. Perhaps the confusion is that the wrong location southwest of Brevard is at a place called Blue Ridge Park Road, a private road which is 45 minutes away from Milepost...More

We weren’t looking for too hard if a hike and this didn’t disappoint. Not a rugged trail, just a little wet. The walk which is a little over a mile each way is enough to work up a sweat and you can rest watching the...More

This is a wonderful place to visit but is crowded because of the beauty. We had some trouble finding parking but then you are off into the woods to see a beautiful waterfall.

We hiked to the Lower Falls at Graveyard Falls and part way through the meadow of Graveyard Fields. It is a fairly easy hike to the Lower Falls but be prepared for some steps. The trail descends down a paved path through a thick rhododendron,...More

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.
