A short hike up a steep, unpaved trail to Linwood cemetery, where Holliday is probably buried, in an unmarked grave.

We made the hike up to Linwood Cemetery to see Doc Holliday's Grave. The entrance to the path is well marked, and the views of Glenwood Springs as you travel up the hill are terrific! If you read the signage carefully at the trailhead, you'll...More

The hike to Doc Holiday's grave is a challenge. Had to be a road in the past to get folks up to a cemetery on top of a mountain! Many of the graves are quite old, and even though Doc is not under the marker,...More

A bit of interesting history. On the way up, we passed the tree with the "beat cancer" spirit ribbons. That, also, was an interesting story.

Who buries a loved one on top of a mountain with dirt walking path for access... Interesting history and great scenery. Bring hydration.

It's worth the time and trip if your visiting Glenwood Springs. It's not that far from town, there are a few spots to park at the bottom of hill and a lot of street parking as well. At the bottom there is a sign with...More

Lots of controversy on if Doc Holliday's was actually buried here, but he for sure died in Glenwood Springs. The description for this walk from the trailhead to the cemetery says it is very strenuous - it is! Although only 1/2 mile, it is about...More

Very interesting history of the city in the oldest cemetery. It is a trek up the mountain to get there but a well maintained trail. Worth the hike as many beautiful stones and plots. Wish they kept it up a little better as trees growing...More

It is a bit of a hike uphill on a rough track about 30 mins or so . It was snow covered when I did it but dry now. It is an old graveyard with good views down into the valley. If you can't walk much , then I would think it... 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.
