A favorite of Asheville, Graveyard Fields offers pristine wilderness, beautiful landscape views, and limitless tranquility. On this round trip hike off the Blue Ridge Parkway, we'll explore the open meadows that gives this area its name while keeping an eye out for the critters that call this area home. We'll wind our way along this lush trail toward viewpoints of cascading waterfalls, stopping for ample breaks to take in the sweet smell of this alpine meadow. Along the way, we'll share some hiking tips and offer insight into the region's history and ecosystem. This hike is perfect for hikers of all experiences levels, and you'll need to feel comfortable walking on uneven terrain for about 5 miles. We love this hike, and are pretty sure you will too!
