It's a great view from the cemetery. That isn't his actual grave but he's there someplace. Just part of the old west that lives on in Glenwood. Take the short hike.

The trailhead is located in a residential area off of 12th Street. Be prepared for a hike because it's straight up. There's a lot of interesting graves up there so it's worth the trip.

Bit of a trek, if you aren't in shape, but, well worth the short hike. Several stops on the way up, and the view is great. I am glad I made the hike. Doc Holliday's history intrigues me.

The hike was a little steep. But well worth the time and hike heading up to Doc's gravesite. It's a gem that is hidden away.

I visited this spot a long time ago and it was fun to see again. I explore the whole Doc Holliday mythology and legends.

The grave is just a memorial to Linwood Cemetery's most famous resident. The sign says that it is unclear where in the cemetery he is buried. The headstone is very nice though and is fenced in. The hike up to the cemetery is steep in some parts so do be careful hiking up and down. There are nice views of... More

Fairly steep, but short hike to see Doc Holliday's grave. The view during the climb and at the top was a magnificent view of the Glenwood Canyon and downtown Glenwood Springs. The total visit time for us was approx. 1 hour broken down into a 15 min climb, 20-30 min at the top, and another 15 min down.

The trailhead for this hike is near City Market, up hill from Blake Street in the old part of Glenwood Springs. Hiking through shrub oak trees, switching back and forth up the hill. Views from the cemetery show the mountain valley below. The history of the graveyard provides a look into the old west.

My husband and I hike up to see Doc Grave Site...we encountered three young men who were high on DRUGS. Very scary ..... They were talking loudly about how Sacred the Grave Yard was, about the Universe and drugs. We walked as fast as we could to get down and get out of that town!
