Graveyard Fields is a high, flat mountain valley filled with wildflowers and surrounded by mountains on the Blue Ridge Parkway. The stunning waterfalls and distinct landscape make it one of the most popular spots along the Blue Ridge Parkway for hiking. The trails lead to 3 waterfalls: Second Falls, Upper Falls and Yellowstone Falls.
The hikes here are well marked and easy to follow. Grasses, small trees, shrubs, rhododendron, and mountain laurel cover the flats and the hillsides. Above the valley looms Black Balsam Mountain and Graveyard Ridge.
