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.

On a locals suggestion, we walked to see where Doc was supposed to be buried. Not a long hike but a little steep, views of the valley are worth the effort. Once you get there the headstones are a walk through history and you get...More

The hike is rather steep and can be hot on a warm day, so take a water bottle. It’s interesting to see the old cemetery and read the historical markers as well as the tombstones. There’s also a great view of Glenwood Springs and the...More

Loved seeing the marker and some of the things folks leave as a tribute are really funny (there was a joint, shot of liquor, cards, coins etc...) just looking around the cemetery was very informative.

First, if you decide to make the trip, I recommend that you wait until late spring or summer. Several portions of the trail / path are shaded. During early spring and winter months, these shaded areas do not melt as fast as... More

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.
