Uphill all the way, but worth it! Less crowded early in the morning. Ok for dogs on leashes!

A steep walk but short and so worth it to see the legendary Doc Holiday’s grave! Make sure you see Kid Curry’s grave too! This hike is a must when you come to Glenwood!

This was a great little hike! It is 1/2 mile up on a constant incline but easy enough and very nice. It winds around the mountainside past a ribbon tree (bring a ribbon or cord to tie onto the branches or root to mark you've been there) and up to a cemetery and potter's field.

short but sreap trail. beautiful views of Glenwood springs. so close if you threw a rock you might hit someone. cool old cemetery at the top. sic Holliday was an interesting character in the old west history worth knowing about.

Quick easy hike. Does have a bit of an incline that I imagine anyone with breathing problems would find more difficult. I hiked it with my 4 year old and she made it the whole way but was getting tired. There is not a lot of shade except at the top so be prepared for sun. Overall, had a great time and my family enjoyed themselves!

Super easy hike. Fairly steep incline. Grave site at the end. Bring a ribbon for the ribbon tree and look for Glenwood spring signs for Clues to the towns mystery!

Moderately steep but short trail to get to Doc Holliday’s grave. Follow the trail up to Kid Curry’s grave and there is an unofficial trail that takes you up to some beautiful views of Glenwood and the valley.

Pretty easy trail, first leg is all uphill, which can be slippery when there’s snow. The hike up to the graveyard isn’t far though, so short and sweet. Great view from the top of GWS!

Forgot to start recording until after the steep beginning. Easy hike. Extremely old cemetery. Only bad thing is they don’t know exactly where Doc Holidays grave is. Still nice views and easy relaxing hike.

Rating this 5 stars due to the great views and the history of both the graveyard at the top and the two historical figures buried here. "Hike" is short and steep, but relatively easy, even in late January with snow and ice. We had the trail and cemetary to ourselves. A must for anyone interested in 19th old west and outlaw history.

For what it is, it's 5 stars. If you want some cool history and a little walk, this is it. If you want a hike, this is not what you're looking for.

Certainly not a lengthy workout but Definitely worth doing. The old graveyard stuff is incredibly cool and a great connect to The legends of the OK Corral, Butch and Sundance

Fun trail. All uphill, so it will give you a bit of a workout. It is fascinating to wander around the cemetery and soak up the history. Check it out if you are in the area.
