This was the departure hike. We did this before we left the city at the end of our vacation. My son and I got up at around 7 and the sun was still hiding behind the mountains. The 6 year old and I knocked this short hike out in about 20 minutes or so, and we took a great walk... More

An easy 1/2 mile hike up an easy trail to see a bit of Glenwood and American history. A perfect early morning trip that only takes about 30 mins round trip.

Doc Holliday's grave is just a fun piece of history to experience, especially if you've been at all enlightened to his history either by story, movie, book, museum, etc. Linwood Cemetery is an easy to moderate hike that does gain elevation but is a fun little visit. Don't expect grandeur at the grave but do enjoy the experience.

I liked the tombstone of Doc Holliday, but is he really buried there? Even if not it is a great view from up there, so just do it!

The views were very nice. Good view of the city. Disliked that Doc Holiday's grave location was unknown.

If you are a history buff or like visiting old places then you won't want to miss this. The climb is cool, the cemetery is a nice piece of history, and the final resting place of a western legend.

Worth the rather steep hike (about 1/2 mile) to the cemetery. Great views of Glenwood Springs. Doc Holliday's grave is interesting.

If you're in Glenwood and enjoy history, this is an interesting stop. Depending on the time of year the hike up may be snowy or muddy. Doc's grave is only an estimate, as the records for the cemetary were lost years ago. He's there, but nobody knows exactly where.

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".
