The short hike is steep but it was worth it for the history held within the cemetery. We heard several people complain about the hike but it wasn't that bad. The cemetery struggles to maintain everything and the display cases did not have much, but the historical signs about Doc Holliday and Kid Curry were very informative and there were... More

The cemetery (where Doc Holliday is memorialized) is a short hike up a fairly steep hill. It is not difficult, however, and once you reach the cemetery it is an interesting little place. We walked around for about 30 minutes with our two young kids, found the memorial to Doc Holliday and left. Not much else to do here.

The hike is short and quite easy with great views of Glenwood Springs. Doc Holliday's 'alleged' grave (no one is sure exactly where he is buried in the cemetery) was well sign posted and the information at the cemetery was very informative. This is well worth the hike up.

And a good hike above town with good views. History side-hike. Nice time see the local historical societies work and efforts - kudos to them for the info, upkeep and preservation.

This cemetery is very old and interesting. There is a short hike to get to it and it overlooks beautiful Glenwood Springs. Two famous people, Doc Holiday and Kid Curry, are buried here but nobody knows exactly where their grave is located. I recommend a visit to this cemetery and give yourself time to wander around and read the headstones... More

Neat place to visit. They have some great historical markers that explain everything there. Definitely worth the trek.

Very cool to see some of the graves up there. We watched Tombstone with the kids and then went there to see where he was burried. The hike is steep but short and worth the effort to see Doc Hollidays grave and Kid Currys too.

Super quick hike, spouse and I guessed a bit less than a mile round trip. Very steep at times, but if you can hike hanging lake this is no big deal. Like any hike, it was worth it at the top. I appreciate the markers and historical signs for the famous gentlemen. All in all a great short hike right... More
