The sign says a moderate to strenuous 1/2 mile hike - True it took us 15 minutes to go up to the cemetery and great view. Worth to get the kids to the cemetery Both Doc Holladay and Kid Curry.

It takes a little bit of a hike up a dirt trail to get to this old west cemetery. It is very interesting and worth the hike if you are up to it. People have left playing cards and mini-bottles on the grave marker.

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.
