This cemetery is had to spot. There is a very steep climb to get up there, but it is worth the climb. So much history. Be sure to bring water for everyone and good hiking shoes. The views on the up are nice. We saw...More

We climbed to the top of the hill to see Doc Holliday's gravesite..it was hot and the altitude caused some discomfort. However it was worth the climb to see the historic site. I highly recommend seeing it if you are healthy enough to make the...More

This is indeed a worthwhile hike. Reading other review, I was surprised at how steep it was. So - I will say that this was a short and easy hike. But it was a long and steep walk to a cemetery (I pity the pall...More

Note: Doc Holliday's actual resting place in the cemetary is unknown. They have erected a memorial for him in a prime location. Interesting to walk around the cemetary and observe the gravestones from this era, ages of people when they passed. Worth the short hike...More

Ok, so its more of a walk than I expected. You can't drive up and see the cemetery. If you are expecting a hike, its a nice one - not too difficult and you get amazing views once there. Its also cool to see Doc's...More

The hike is a bit steep but honestly not that difficult. Benches are located along the trail to sit and rest if needed. This is a very old cemetery with significant value if one is a history buff. The exact grave-site of "Doc" is unknown....More

It's a pretty steep climb but you're fairly warned. There are benches along the way for resting and taking in the views. Cemetery plots from the 1800s-1900s.
