The trailhead for this hike is near City Market, up hill from Blake Street in the old part of Glenwood Springs. Hiking through shrub oak trees, switching back and forth up the hill. Views from the cemetery show the mountain valley below. The history of the graveyard provides a look into the old west.

My husband and I hike up to see Doc Grave Site...we encountered three young men who were high on DRUGS. Very scary ..... They were talking loudly about how Sacred the Grave Yard was, about the Universe and drugs. We walked as fast as we could to get down and get out of that town!

Nice little hike beautiful scenery and the grave site with a nice homage to Doc Holliday. Although they do not know where he is actually buried in that cemetery they made a grave marker for him and remembrance of him.

I'm 66 and suffer from mild cardia arrythmia ("a-fib"). I was not able to complete the hike. I stopped every fifty steps or so to catch my breath, but there is absolutely no shade on the trail, and in the summer, the temperatures can climb to the high 90s. I felt that I was at risk, and I turned back,... More

Nice scenic hike above the town. Nice history lesson about Doc Holiday & other outlaws. Interesting to see and read old tombstones. Take water & sunscreen on the hike.

We came to see Doc Holliday's grave site after already spending 3.5 hours hiking that morning, not realizing it was yet another hike UPHILL. It is a short hike, but steep, gravely path and really no shade at the height of the day. There is a bench part way up to stop and rest and the views all around are... More

A quick jaunt up a hill, just enough to get the blood flowing but not so much that my 3 year old couldn't handle it. Once we got up there it was awesome to see all the old graves and the view over the city was a nice perk. I hiked in flip flops since I broke my toe a... More

Cemetery for Doc Holliday of Old West fame. But the cemetery is not maintenanced well, and the history and legend kind of get lost. Nice view of downtown Glenwood Springs though.
