A nice stop up the hill in Deadwood. Seeing the final resting places of two of the legends of the Wild West was a neat thing and worth the price of admission. If we had more time I would have loved to wander some more.

St. Moriah cemetery is up a steep, winding, narrow road from this tourist trap town, but when you reach the very top of this mountain, you can enjoy a lazy, easy, flat walk down an old cemetery road free of traffic, for a nice fee....More

Hard to rate a cemetery 5 stars. It won't wow you and you really shouldn't be surprised by what you see/find. Go for the history of some famous people. Great view of Deadwood as this cemetery is up on the hill. Parts of the walk...More

Spent a couple of hours touring the cemetery on our own. We were there in October which is the slower season so there was plenty of parking available right outside the cemetery. It only cost a couple of dollars for entry. They had a nice...More

Be prepared to do a lot of walking and most up hill. It is a very pretty spot with good views looking over the town. The visitor center was closed when we arrived so we missed out on the video. I don't remember who it...More

The entire cemetery is on a hillside. The walkways can be steep, but much of it is paved, so perhaps a wheelchair could be used.

I haven't been in winter, but I can tell you the road to get up to the cemetery was a small winding road so if there is snow or ice, it would probably be treacherous. I've just moved to MT from the South and it seems that... More

We did not take it, but there is a tour bus that makes the trip there. However it is right in town, and there is plenty of free parking at the cemetery.
