We had some time to kill so we drove the Blue Ridge Parkway to visit Graveyard Fields and the Lower Falls. Contrary to the name there is no graveyard here. The area was named after the area was clear-cut for logging and all the tree stumps resembled tombstones. Gaining access to the Lower Falls is easy as long as you don't mind stairs. The trail is mostly paved with a good number of well maintained stairs and a short bridge. The area is very beautiful and worth a stop.
