Cedar Mountain, NC
Second Falls can be seen from the Blue Ridge Parkway near the Graveyard Fields Overlook. This 60-foot cascade is one of three located on the Yellowstone Prong that can be accessed from the overlook. The picture above was take from roadside along the parkway. The falls are extremely popular spot on the Parkway largely because of the easy .3-mile trail from the overlook.
