This Boot Hill is interesting to walk around and the town cemetery is up there too. What makes it worth the trip is the view. It won't take much time, so take the drive and your camera, you will be glad you did.

The reviews I read of Boot Hill describe this attraction as a drive. I recommend a walk/hike to the hill top. You are rewarded by a lovely view of Virginia City and beyond. It's an easy walk. To cool off afterwards, walk down the hill...More

Short drive up the hill. Basically four markers of bad dudes hung by the Vigalants in 1860ish. Good story but poorly maintained.

The view of Virginia City from Boot Hill is fantastic. The graves site markers are recreations but reportedly in the correct locations. Worth visiting if in Virginia City as it is a very short distance.

A beautiful view a Virginia City and it's just a quick drive from town. A sad story of the men that are buried there, but a must if you are in town. This historic stop is marked clearly with sign's, and road is well maintained....More
