Ascent Trip ReportI was able to drive up the rough road to Graveyard Hill, but if you have a long vehicle you might need to walk. I was in my 1991 Ford Festiva and I made it easily over several tall terraces that a longer passenger car might ground out on. Anyway, from where I parked it was only 430 feet to the summit, but don't expect to hike there quickly. You will definitely get distracted by all the old graves and tombstones in the tangle of vegetation. Many of the graves are only marked with stones, but some of the tombstones had birth dates as early as 1804! There was one infant grave that was very unique with an artistic sepulchre. The high point requires a bushwhack to get there, but you will be greeted with an easy to find benchmark.
