Grave's Mountain is located just west of Lincolnton, on Highway 378.  Look for the sign for the Rock Swap on the left.  All individuals entering the site must sign liability waivers, including waivers for children.  Entrance is free, but gratuities are welcome for the caretaker ($5-$10 would be nice) and gratuities for the golf cart drivers are worth it, especially if you are carrying a lot of gear or rocks.  Take plenty of drinking water and clothing appropriate for sun and for walking on rocks.
