Blue Ridge Parkway Graveyard Fields Lower Falls Poster
The mile-high valley of Graveyard Fields, located on milepost 418.8 of the Blue Ridge Parkway, entices thousands of visitors each year with one of the most dramatic overlooks in the area. The 3 mile trail system here travels through blueberry laden meadows and mud choked ruts to the scenic waterfalls of the Upper and Lower Yellowstone Prong. This gorgeous landscape derives its sinister name from a weather event that leveled most of the valleys trees over 100 years ago, leaving moss covered tree stumps that resembled a ghostly graveyard, which early pioneers first encountered when discovering this area. Devastated by an epic fire in 1925 that incinerated most of the valley and surrounding peaks, its forests are regenerating into a vibrant and diverse ecosystem worth spending an afternoon exploring.
