This cemetery is well taken care of! No litter anywhere. Be sure to bring your walking shoes. It's a long hike and a lot of it is an uphill climb. The gift shop there holds local goods and cute knick-knacks.

The view of Deadwood is worth the walk up. Otherwise it is just a cemetery, similar to many thousands around the country. The walk up the hill was good for heart and soul. The $2 entry fee is just about ok. It helps to maintain...More

Wild Bill and Calamity Jane’s final resting place. The cemetery is high on a hill overlooking Deadwood and it’s a very serene and stunning place to visit. Deer were walking freely among the graves.

A nice stop up the hill in Deadwood. Seeing the final resting places of two of the legends of the Wild West was a neat thing and worth the price of admission. If we had more time I would have loved to wander some more.

St. Moriah cemetery is up a steep, winding, narrow road from this tourist trap town, but when you reach the very top of this mountain, you can enjoy a lazy, easy, flat walk down an old cemetery road free of traffic, for a nice fee....More

The entire cemetery is on a hillside. The walkways can be steep, but much of it is paved, so perhaps a wheelchair could be used.

I haven't been in winter, but I can tell you the road to get up to the cemetery was a small winding road so if there is snow or ice, it would probably be treacherous. I've just moved to MT from the South and it seems that... More

We did not take it, but there is a tour bus that makes the trip there. However it is right in town, and there is plenty of free parking at the cemetery.
