This was a very cool historical site. It’s about a 1/2 mile hike to the top where the cemetery is. Any fan of the movie tombstone would like this attraction. Cool history and a easy to moderate hike in one. Kid Curry is also buried...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 awesome. Amazing bit of history...More

Hiked up with kids aged 4-11, not too bad kids were all capable of making it on their own. There is a wishing tree on the way up as well as a bench at the top overlooking the town.

It’s a short hike (1/2 mile) to get to the MEMORIAL grave marker of Doc Holliday. What you will see is NOT his actual grave. According to the sign by his memorial, he was likely buried in an unmarked grave but the records of grave...More

This is a hike I first went on when I was 9. It's a nice short hike that offers a great view of Glenwood Springs with a bit of Glenwood's history thrown in.

Some sports team that was visiting and hiked up put the ribbons on the tree about three years ago. No active story. It was really pretty when it happened.
