One of our favorite shows is Tombstone, so we had to go see this famous grave site. It is well worth it!! So much history up on that mountain!! It is quite a hike for people that are out of shape or older. It is pretty much straight up so take water and maybe a snack. Most importantly take water!!!... More

Enjoyed finding out more about Doc Holliday and that he passed away at the Glenwood Hotel (which is no longer there/burned down), and its prior location was at 8th and Grand where there is now an outfitter store. It is a pretty moderate/steep climb, but not too long. One can stop along the way to catch your breath and take... More

My family and I read about this cemetery which supposedly has Doc Holliday's grave while we were in Glenwood Springs, so we decided to visit it. It is well worth the trip as the cemetery has a number of older grave sites. As the information in the cemetery states, Doc is supposedly buried somewhere there (although nobody knows exactly where... More

I am a Doc Holliday fan and was looking forward to seeing this. It is a hike, 1/2 mile uphill. I had on flip flops which was not ideal but I was not going to let that stop me. The cemetery is really cool and we walked around just to read some of the older tombstones. Come to find out,... More

Great side trip, but prepare to hike up a hill in altitude. Nice trail to hike, even for small kids. Takes maybe 30 minutes to the top. Lots of history and well annotated markers along the way. Views are spectacular from the trail. Take water with you unless you are a camel.

I cannot tell you how many steps you will take. I cannot tell you how much elevation in feet you will travel. I will say don't do it in chaps and you will probably end up carrying your jacket if it a heavy one. Take water. I can tell you it is worth it.

Great to take in a little bit of history of the West. Nice that it isn't too touristy. Great views of the Hotel Colorado and surrounds as well!

I'm a bit of a Old West history buff so I loved this place. Some of the reviews complain about the hike. They should be ashamed of themselves, it's less than. 5 miles. It is up hill but so worth it. Great Old boot Hill cemetery. Has not been in use since the 1920"s. Teaches a great history lesson. Not... More

Maybe a 0.4 mile steep hike to an interesting old cemetery. Take your time. Fun to look at the old graves. Good town and mountain views from the top. The trail head starts in a close-in residential area. It is also good exercise, No fee.

As others have said, it's a steep hike to the graveyard; I was astonish to think that horse drawn hearses once managed those curves. The cemetery itself is lovely: broken down but with an amazing view. I was astonished to see the memorials left at Doc Holliday's memorial site (he was buried as a pauper in the location, it seems,... More
