The view is great, and if you're at all interested in history, you'll get a nice fix here. The trail is steep, however. I know many people who would not have made it to the top without stopping frequently. Bring some cards, coins, tobacco, or alcohol for Doc Holliday! I'm sure he would appreciate it.

Yes this is where the famous Tombstone, Val Kilmer portrait, Doc Holliday is laid to rest. It's a short hike up an easy grade to a great view of the city, with which you can also take in some history. "it's a daisy if ya do".

This might be fun for families. I went with my husband. It was a cemetery. Not that exciting. The information on Kid Curry and Doc Holliday was interesting, but not worth the hike. There are more interesting hikes in Glenwood.

Interesting, moderate hike. Pretty view. Resting stops on the climb up. Love the Western history. Worth the walk up. Memory making.

Interesting but would have liked to see more historical facts posted than the 2 signs. CAUTION!!!!! We encountered a bear on the way up there Sept 13.

Old cemetery where headstones mostly are from the 1800s. Not well maintained. Doc Holliday is buried somewhere in the cemetery but as the plot maps were lost, not sure where.

Linwood Cemetery is the final resting place of famous outlaws Doc Holliday and Harvey Logan, otherwise known as Kid Curry. The beginning of the trail says it is a half mile hike but it didn't seem that long. The trail is a little steep in some parts but nothing too bad. Once in the cemetery, Doc Holliday is off to...

Cool history behind the cemetery and the graves of Kid Curry, as well as Doc Holiday. Dic Holiday is apparently buried in the forgotten "Potters" area for the unlucky and unwealthy with a grave stake that has since degraded. Trail is a little steep at a point with uneven gravel. Great views to the right of GWS half way up.... More

The short hike is steep but it was worth it for the history held within the cemetery. We heard several people complain about the hike but it wasn't that bad. The cemetery struggles to maintain everything and the display cases did not have much, but the historical signs about Doc Holliday and Kid Curry were very informative and there were... More

The cemetery (where Doc Holliday is memorialized) is a short hike up a fairly steep hill. It is not difficult, however, and once you reach the cemetery it is an interesting little place. We walked around for about 30 minutes with our two young kids, found the memorial to Doc Holliday and left. Not much else to do here.
