“A must-do for history buffs!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

As others have pointed out, it is a relatively easy hike IF you are used to altitude; otherwise, it might be a bit difficult. It offers a great view of the canyon and city. And, for those of us that love to walk around old cemeteries, this offers that experience. Of course, we all want to see Doc Holliday's grave but just walking around and reading the tombstones offers such a slice of history. We loved it!

“Nice and easy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

If you aren't into a real "hike", this is good - it's more of a walk than a hike. Very short, but still some good steepness to get your heart pumping, albeit just for a moment. Nice view of the town. Not really much of a graveyard but the kids liked it.

“Great Spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

The climb was a bit much so wear good walking shoes and take water. The hike was not long just a good up hill walk. Once at the cemetary it was a fun experience. Not only is Doc Holliday somewhere in the cemetary, so is Kid Curry.

“Steep climb”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

This is not for the faint hearted. It's a steep, rock trail with little shade. We enjoyed the cemetery but felt disappointed that "Doc may be buried there" Liked it but felt like Mt. Rushmore and Grand Canyon when Chevy Chase does the little bounce and ok let's go.

On a cool day, I would do it again

“Not for the infirm”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

The rouigh gravel steep route has to be walked , and I'd recommend suitable walking shoes if you fancy it.
I took adavantage of the two benches on the trail to regain my breath, and once you get there, the small hilly cemetery is unkempt and neglected.
It seems a bit of a cheat for the exact grave to be unknown, and the fenced marker is presumably a best guess.
I expected better.
