Moderate uphill walk. The cemetery is interesting and Doc Holliday’s grave is a great photo op! Try to go in the morning since there is little shade in the afternoon and it can be a bit dusty. It was a short but fun adventure.

Great short hike with a view and lots of history.

One of the most special small walks around. The energy is so special; but if you get winded easily,save that energy for the first bit of the walk up as it's a bit steep in the beginning (and dependant upon season can be slick). After that it's a breeze with beautiful views and so much history. Don't just stop to say hello to Doc, go explore the rest of the cemetery as well... there are some beautiful hidden spots and memorials deep in the trees on small animal trails.

Was a great hike, enjoyable, few to little people on the trail but was incredibly muddy. The ice was a factor at first and I was thinking of hearing back to the trailhead to grab my yaktrax but after the ice let up the mud began. Nonetheless, easy and enjoyable

Very simple trail. Some nice views of Glenwood and some cool history. Street parking. Trail has some trash lying around.

Nice nothing long but views are super and I really appreciate how they maintain the cemetery and how in many places they've left it as is and I had a very authentic and historical feel to me I truly enjoyed the morning to be it was a pretty easy walk up there but he just gets deeper and places so take water for sure

Short with views of the valley. There are a couple areas to rest if needed and ends at the cemetery. More a point of interest than a hike.

Steep, steady walk to a very old cemetary. Had to pay homage to a couple of the Old West's infamous characters.

A little steep, but short and a memorable hike for sure. Great views of Glenwood Springs, and the graveyard at the top is lovely to walk through. We went on a Monday morning with friends and our kids after grabbing coffee at Deja Brew, and had the trail and cemetery to ourselves (except for an orange tabby who followed us, which the kids found delightful.) Lovely spot.

LIES! Hike to the top and find Doc Holliday's grave and it says he's not buried here but we think he's buried in this cemetery...probably. Nobody knows. We're not sure if that's Kid Curry's body either. View of glenwood was ok. Hike wasn't a total loss though. About halfway up you encounter Annie's wishing tree. Look it up. It's a deep burn in the hammys.

Nice little hike after dinner with my wife, hiked at night time, great view of downtown from up in the hills. Interesting at the end reading about Doc Holliday.

Short, slightly steep hike up to see some cool graves, like Doc Holliday, or Kid Carson (The Great Parachute Train Robbery). Nice views of Glenwood too.

I was surprised it was right in the middle of town. It is a short but beautiful hike. The graveyard is beautiful.
Be respectful of the neighbrohood

Easy, short hike with a great view and the beautiful cemetery at the top. It is up the side of the canyon but has many places to stop and rest and enjoy the view. Parking is on the street so be respectful of the homes nearby!

Steady climb on old rutted road with cool destination. We were looking for the old rusted pick up in pics but never found.

It was a great short trail. It was pretty easy to me. It's one of my favorite trails! If I lived close, I would use this trail as my running trail. The gravestones were very old and beautiful!

This is a fun short hike up to Doc Hokiday's grave. Keep in mind it is straight up. I saw a few people struggling. Awesome view of Glenwood Springs.

Nice little trail with great views of Glenwood. We went early and had the Cemetery to ourselves- it got busy quickly as we were ready to leave 10am-ish
