This is a well marked trail and it is easy to find. It is up hill all the way there, but not to strenuous. It is well worth the hour and a half.

This is a nice short hike, although uphill. We decided to walk from our hotel near the hot springs, so had a chance to also hike through downtown. It is interesting history and you get some great views from the trail.

We enjoyed touring the Pioneer Cemetary & reading the tombstones of Doc Holliday, Kid Curry & all of the rest of those in their final resting place. To arrive at the cemetary the walk is all uphill and with the exception of a small area...More

The hike was not hard, and there were good views of Glenwood Springs. The cemetery was beautiful and peaceful. There were several good interpretive signs. For a longer hike, head down the hill on the river walk.

The memorial is in the old Pioneer Cemetery. Easy directions from the visitor's center in Town. The site isn't to far up the hill, supposedly 2 tenths of a mile but it seemed longer as it is straight up the hill and took a while...More

If you're looking for a short, easy hike right in downtown Glenwood, the trail up to Linwood Cemetery is a good choice. The trail is steep, but not strenuous. Gravel with small rocks in places. Older folks (like me) and kids (age 6+) can easily...More

Enjoyed the site once got to the top. It was a long steep climb. Not recommend for anyone with walking chalenges.

Per other reviews, this is a very short but steep walk. The views of valley floor are nice and if you enjoy western history, it's a kick to see the monument/headstone the town put in the hillside cemetery.

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.
