The views were very nice. Good view of the city. Disliked that Doc Holiday's grave location was unknown.

If you are a history buff or like visiting old places then you won't want to miss this. The climb is cool, the cemetery is a nice piece of history, and the final resting place of a western legend.

Worth the rather steep hike (about 1/2 mile) to the cemetery. Great views of Glenwood Springs. Doc Holliday's grave is interesting.

If you're in Glenwood and enjoy history, this is an interesting stop. Depending on the time of year the hike up may be snowy or muddy. Doc's grave is only an estimate, as the records for the cemetary were lost years ago. He's there, but nobody knows exactly where.

The view is great, and if you're at all interested in history, you'll get a nice fix here. The trail is steep, however. I know many people who would not have made it to the top without stopping frequently. Bring some cards, coins, tobacco, or alcohol for Doc Holliday! I'm sure he would appreciate it.

Yes this is where the famous Tombstone, Val Kilmer portrait, Doc Holliday is laid to rest. It's a short hike up an easy grade to a great view of the city, with which you can also take in some history. "it's a daisy if ya do".

This might be fun for families. I went with my husband. It was a cemetery. Not that exciting. The information on Kid Curry and Doc Holliday was interesting, but not worth the hike. There are more interesting hikes in Glenwood.

Interesting, moderate hike. Pretty view. Resting stops on the climb up. Love the Western history. Worth the walk up. Memory making.

Old cemetery where headstones mostly are from the 1800s. Not well maintained. Doc Holliday is buried somewhere in the cemetery but as the plot maps were lost, not sure where.
