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.

The hike is short and quite easy with great views of Glenwood Springs. Doc Holliday's 'alleged' grave (no one is sure exactly where he is buried in the cemetery) was well sign posted and the information at the cemetery was very informative. This is well worth the hike up.

And a good hike above town with good views. History side-hike. Nice time see the local historical societies work and efforts - kudos to them for the info, upkeep and preservation.

This cemetery is very old and interesting. There is a short hike to get to it and it overlooks beautiful Glenwood Springs. Two famous people, Doc Holiday and Kid Curry, are buried here but nobody knows exactly where their grave is located. I recommend a visit to this cemetery and give yourself time to wander around and read the headstones... More
