Glenwood Springs..fabulous, outdoor massive swimming pools. Here Doc Holliday died. The place he stayed at is also to be found on one of the main streets.It`s signposted so easily found. 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

We came to see Doc Holliday's grave site after already spending 3.5 hours hiking that morning, not realizing it was yet another hike UPHILL. It is a short hike, but steep, gravely path and really no shade at the height of the day. There is a bench part way up to stop and rest and the views all around are... More

A quick jaunt up a hill, just enough to get the blood flowing but not so much that my 3 year old couldn't handle it. Once we got up there it was awesome to see all the old graves and the view over the city was a nice perk. I hiked in flip flops since I broke my toe a... More

Cemetery for Doc Holliday of Old West fame. But the cemetery is not maintenanced well, and the history and legend kind of get lost. Nice view of downtown Glenwood Springs though.

The owner of the Best Kept Secret B&B, Dave Fulton, volunteers at the Pioneer Cemetery in town. We walked up there on July 3 (steep but short walk) and enjoyed looking at all the graves and talking about people's lives. Doc Holliday is not buried there but he died in Glenwood Springs and there is a memorial to him there.

It is a decent hike to get to the memorial. Keep in mind that they do not know exactly where he is buried due to loss of records. They just know he is somewhere in the cemetery so you are just visiting a memorial created in his honor.

I wanted to do something off the beaten path & have an affinity for cemeteries. Had to park on the street below and "hike" in. The views alone are worth the climb, the cemetery is unkept & quiet. I climbed higher into the cemetery and found another monument. But again, the view was amazing. I only saw 3 other people... More

This is a great place to visit and read the history of the headstones in the cemetry. A Short hike from the Hotel Denver, but wear comfortable sturdy shoes. Nice Trail with some good views.
