This was a great visit. This is off the beaten path and is worth the uphill 1/2 mile hike to see the old grave stones and landmarks. Take water and and take you time to enjoy the views of this area.

This is my third time here. My last time was five years ago and I noticed on this visit that there were many new signs that spoke about the history of the cemetary as well as several of its inhabitants. The potters field (up to the right when entering the cemetery) was very interesting and the views over Glenwood Springs... More

My daughter and I did this on a whim, in sandals... Definitely wear better shoes! It is about a half mile uphill! Pretty steep but doable. It is not touristy, we passed two families on our entire trip up and back down (and one homeless guy with no shirt on in the cemetary itself which was weird.). It is very... More

I am a big history buff and was happy happy to go see Doc's and Kid Curry's grave site. When we got to the top of the hill, we got rained on and got wet but was all part of the memory. Half way up the trail is a tree that folks tie a ribbon with a wish note on... More

This is certainly NOT the main attraction in Glenwood Springs. If you're a history buff, it's worth the few minutes to hike up there. For scenic hikes, there are better trails.

I have wanted to visit the cemetery for several years now and finally got a chance. It is an easy 1.5 mile walk from the Hot Springs Lodge. You do have to walk through a residential neighborhood to get to the trailhead. It is a steep walk up a hillside that meanders to the top so prepare to huff and... More

The cemetery is located up a mountain in the middle of a neighborhood you have to find parking in this residential area. The cemetery doesn't appear to be maintained by anyone and is overgrown with brush and looks disheveled. Too bad.

I love old cemeteries and this is a great one. Just a short hike up the hill to the old cemetery where Doc Holliday's grave marker is. There are a lot of grave markers for soldiers who fought in the Civil War, the sections are separated by different social and ethnic sections and a lot of the grave markers are... More
