  • Doc Holliday may be my biggest historical crush and I felt it necessary to pay homage at his grave when traveling through the area. The hike was much easier than expected (if you fairly fit it should ...  more »
  • got about half way up before it became impassible. and this is in a low snow year/La Nina. We may try again in warmer temps, but i do not recommend it for winter weather  more »
  • The cemetery is about a half mile or more up hill. The hike is okay, but definitely considered a hike. The trail was covered in snow when I went and it was tricky going up and down. The views are awes...  more »

  • It's a great 1/2 mile steep trail that takes you to a great old cemetery that houses two of the Wild West greats, Doc Holliday and Kid Curry. But beyond that it's a historic grave with an interesting story that teaches you a little lesson of the 'Potters fields' (burial grounds of the 'unbefriended'....aka....paupers). It's a great trek and right off Eastern downtown Glenwood Springs. Take your time, rest along the way and drink plenty of water. I highly recommend this Trail for the nice short afternoon workout hike. The historical value just adds to it and the view just tops it all off!!
  • If you like frontier history then this is a really fun hike. Parking is in a residential area but very easy with no crowds. The hike is somewhat steep but very short so almost anyone can get to the cemetery. It takes about 10-15 minutes. And did I mention it is free.
  • Great hike up on a chilly night, very educational interesting stories! The actors are so real life! Have gone a few times and learn something new each time. Highly recommend each Halloween season for the whole family!
  • Beautiful route to cemetery. Benches perfectly placed within route for those who need rest. Gorgeous views leading up mountain. Gravesite is well kept, and worth the hike.
  • PRO : In the area there are signs that lead you towards the trail. CONS : It is a hike!!!! I didn't make it . My boyfriend tried but it was really icy. We were sliding all over the place. If you go during winter be aware of snow and ice conditions
