This was a short, somewhat steep little hike up to the cemetery with a memorial to Doc Holliday and Kid Curry's (from Butch Cassidy's gang) grave site. If you know the story of Doc Holliday, then it is a fun site to visit and read...More

We arrived at the beginning of the trail head to find a sign that stated that the bodies in the Linwood Cemetery had been moved to another location. The reason is for sanitary reasons since the cemetery is on a hillside where there is water...More

Felt like a straight up hike. Like they had a few benches along the way. The path was very safe to walk.

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.

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.
