nice hike with great views and learn some history

My husband and I did the hike on a warm day but not uncomfortably hot day. Take water. We really enjoyed it. Took us 30 minutes because it is a moderate climb hill. A lot faster... read more

Arranged my vacation around this stop. I needed to pay my respects to Doc Holliday. There is a lot of speculation on Doc's location but the stop is still worth it. The hike is a little steep but my elderly mother managed it so I don't think it's too bad. If you love Doc Holliday, this place needs to be... More

My husband and I did the hike on a warm day but not uncomfortably hot day. Take water. We really enjoyed it. Took us 30 minutes because it is a moderate climb hill. A lot faster coming down. Noticed that most people in 1800s didn't live past 50.

The hike up the hill was really hard at first....then I realized I was trying to walk at my normal pace...at a higher altitude and on a cold, winter day. Once I slowed my pace, and took in the view, the hike up was a lot easier. Though I saw only 3 other people the entire time, the trail was... More

This was my second visit but the first for my husband. It's a narrow & steep half mile trail up to the cemetery. However, benches have now been placed to sit down and take a rest, if needed. We knew prior to going the exact location of Doc Holiday's Grave is unknown. I was taken by surprise the marker has... More

I highly recommend this visit. Especially for folk with passion for the settling of our great western States. I was lucky to have a beautiful day for the short hike up. It's a very reasonable hike, one that kids older than 7 can easily make. It's about .25 miles of a hike. The trail is clean, clear and groomed. There... More

Another little hike recommended by locals to do before we headed back to Denver... Easy .5 mile walk with cute benches along the way... Graves sites were old and fun to read... I wish there was more information once you got there... Looks like at some point they do tours?! The path next to a house and a street so... More

The hike to the grave site is rather steep, but the trailhead warns of this. There are a few places to sit and rest along the trail and the views are good. Upon arrival, a sign describing Potter's field indicates that the real location of Doc Holliday's grave is unknown. The memorial marker was erected for tourists, and this was... More

Such a scam. You had to hike up a mile section uphill to get to the gravesite then it was just a memorial. They don't even know if he was even buried there. This was such a waste of time!!!
