We've done this hike up to the cemetery in both summer and dead of winter. Summer trail is a little steeper without all the snow smoothing it out. It's a beautiful walk/trail and stunning views from the top - amazing photo ops. The cemetery itself offers informative plaques so u can know the history. Beautiful American flag up there, too....

The walk is listed as 1/2 mile but that is probably the round trip distance. There are several interesting tomb stones as well as some brief information about Doc Holiday. The views of Glenwood Springs are nice. Recommend it for a good way to get some exercise while still having a destination.

The cemetery is simply at the top of a hill. It is less than a mile, but a little bit of a haul. However when you get to the top it is well worth it. You have an amazing view of Glenwood Springs. The cemetery is a great depiction of the era, Doc Holiday and Kid Curry are buried here.... More

This is a doable hike for the entire family up to the top of a mountain where the views along the way just get better and better. It's free. My favorite time here is just before Halloween when they have guided tours in the evening (that cost $$) but they'll have costumed characters of the dead buried there (like Doc... More

It's about a 1/2 hike up rough terrain to get to the cemetery that famed Doc Holiday was burried in. Don't expect to see his tombstone as no one knows where he was actually buried. There is a nice memorial for him, though.

Cemeteries are a way for us to keep in touch with people who have passed. The cemetery also reminds us how short life was before the turn of the century. It is ironic that the two famous people buried here have markers however no one knows exactly where they are buried.

It's a fairly steep walk up to the cemetery, but it is worth the walk for the views and the history. Some areas of the cemetery are neglected and overgrown with vegetation, but there are several tombstones that provide an interesting history of the area.

Steep hike to the graveyard. For added fun we went at sunset after a snowfall. Both our cell phones went out in the graveyard but the high views of Glenwood Springs were stunning, Seeing Doc Holliday's alledge grave made it spooky!

It was a pretty steep hike. It gets pretty hot in the summer but climbing early morning or in the evening would be recommended.
