Nice article of unusual

Nice article of unusual interest, but it reminds me of a cub reporter the Chronicle had in the late '80s who couldn't tell a story without leaving out the interesting or pertinent parts. She told of a little known park that was really nice and family oriented in Columbia County that was hard to find, but nowhere in her story did she tell where it was!! So, where is Graves Mountain, and how do you get there?
