Starting at the junction of US Route 93 and Nevada State Route 318, the cemetery can be found by traveling north on Nevada highway 318 for five miles. Turn right or east on the Cannon Ranch Road which is a dirt road and travel on it for 1/2 mile. When you get near ranch buildings and equipment the road will fork. Take the fork to the left which heads northeast and goes up a small hill to the top of the hill about 1/16th mile from the fork. Here you will find the Hiko Cemetery.

The oldest currently marked grave in this cemetery is 1876. There are 35 obvious graves that are not marked in any currently legible way. Two of these were recently created and will most likely get tombstones soon. Among the 33 older un marked graves it is very possible that there are graves that were created up to ten years prior to 1876.

It is well known that horse and/or cattle theives were caught and hung nearby in the late 1800s and it is believed that they were buried here in un marked graves. Also at a native American Indian camp near Hiko there was a fight among drunk Indians and several were killed and the camp was abandoned. The local white settlers may have buried the dead Indians in this cemetery.

It is well fenced and reasonably well cared for (except a few weeds) even though there is no grass. There are currently 72 tombstones with legible inscriptions. One of these however is not a grave but is a memorial of Irene Walch Simmers whose ashes are located in Needle Rock, Colorado.

I walked and read this cemetery, completing this transcription on Apr 01, 2007.
