If you are in Glenwood Springs this is worth the walk to go see. It won't blow you away, but is pretty interesting. The walk up is a little steep, but you will be rewarded with some nice views in addition to the cemetery.

A little bit of history for those who like to learn. I liked looking at the site and the scenery. Beautiful hillsides.

This is just a nice walk from downtown, maybe a little more than a mile or so, mostly on sidewalks along the city's streets. We have taken the Amtrak train here several times, and stayed here overnight. We usually find time to take the walk up here before leaving on the next day's train, particularly when we have any of...

Its not even sure where the little murderer is buried, but the view of Glenwood from the cemetery is spectacular. Likewise the phony headstone of Kid Curry.

A great hike with great views of the valley, culminating in a bit of history, the graves are well taken care of by a historical society and the grounds show the care. Look around the headstones as you'll recognize quite a few historical names!

I made this hike several times because I enjoy the views down into Glenwood Springs. It is a short trail and no big stones or trees to climb over. Half way up there is a bench made out of a tree to relax on again with the views down in to the city. The grave site is a small area... More

It is a great little hike that provides great views of Glenwood. The cemetary offers a lot of historical tid-bits as well. It's free and fun!

Neat for those who like old cemetaries...a bit of a hike for a "maybe" this is his grave...not sure if it really matters if it is or not but the rest of the old cemetary is neat. Be ready to hike uphill approx 1/2 mile on a gravel road, but the view is pretty as well. Go slow and enjoy... More

I'm all about doing 'tourist things' and things related to history are fun too. Pretty fascinating story about how and why Doc Holliday ended up in Glenwood Springs. In 1873 he was diagnosed with tuberculosis, the same disease that had claimed his mother when he was 15. He chose Glenwood because of the therapeutic hot springs. He died in his... More
