U.S. Forest Service Graveyard Fields full project description and map
The Pisgah Ranger District of the Pisgah National Forest is seeking public input on the Graveyard Fields
Project. The Graveyard Fields area is located 25 miles southwest of Asheville, NC and ranges in elevation from about 5,000' to over 6,200' (see attached map). The Pisgah Ranger District is visited each year by millions of people who primarily experience the Forest through recreation, and more specifically through visiting destinations accessible by trails and similar infrastructure. The Graveyard Fields project seeks to restore, protect, and improve one of the most highly visited destinations on the District, known for its distinctive geography, natural communities, and waterfalls.
The project is divided into four primary categories of work: Heavy trail maintenance, trail relocation and
construction, stream restoration, and red spruce restoration.
