BE PREPARED FOR A HIKE! The descriptions say a "short hike" - seriously it is a steep hike. Dont do it in the heat for sure!.

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!

Nice little hike beautiful scenery and the grave site with a nice homage to Doc Holliday. Although they do not know where he is actually buried in that cemetery they made a grave marker for him and remembrance of him.

I'm 66 and suffer from mild cardia arrythmia ("a-fib"). I was not able to complete the hike. I stopped every fifty steps or so to catch my breath, but there is absolutely no shade on the trail, and in the summer, the temperatures can climb to the high 90s. I felt that I was at risk, and I turned back,... More

Nice scenic hike above the town. Nice history lesson about Doc Holiday & other outlaws. Interesting to see and read old tombstones. Take water & sunscreen on the hike.

Hike up to see the grave. Not a problem for Brits..we`re used to walking! Full of interesting names...so take a look at the other gravestones, too. Doc isn`t buried where... More
