A must walk in GWS when you are here

It's a nice, easy, well-groomed dirt path. Totally worth the 1/2 hour it takes to walk up. Doc isn't really buried here but the tombstone has served as a monument to his memory... read more

It's a nice, easy, well-groomed dirt path. Totally worth the 1/2 hour it takes to walk up. Doc isn't really buried here but the tombstone has served as a monument to his memory for a long time. Go check it out! Bring water if you come up in the summer.

I enjoy history, so I decided to make the trip to see Doc's grave while in Colorado. The trip up the mountain is short but moderately steep. Once you're in the cemetery, the signs clearly state that Doc is buried somewhere in the cemetery, but no one knows where. The 'grave' is a stone/marker surrounded by a short fence. The... More

For those "History Buffs". Doc Holiday died on Grand Avenue in Glenwood Springs, Colorado. There is a plaque on a building that states this is where Doc Holiday died. Walk around downtown & see if you find it. The headstone you will see, once you make it to the top, is more of a tribute to Doc. He is buried... More

After walking a short distance, mostly uphill you sea level people, you see a headstone and fence dedicated to Doc Holliday, there are also other family headstones here, and Kid Curry is also said to be buried here.

Didn't know he was buried here until some locals told me. It is quite the hike to get there but a nice workout. Rumor has it that he is not even buried there.

I’m a big fan of Westerns and am highly interested in U.S. history, so Doc Holiday’s grave was definitely a point of personal interest. I once had a chance to visit the O.K. Corral in Tombstone Arizona, so this felt a bit like closing the circle. Overall, I’d say it makes for a quick, interesting visit, but truthfully if you... More

A historical must see! Make sure to bring bottled water and wear shoes with grips for the hike up the mountain

I am a Doc Holiday fan and was very excited to go see his resting place. We had to hike up about a mile and when we came upon the cemetery I enjoyed the history of it all except for one tiny detail. They haven't quite figured out where exactly ole Doc is officially buried. That kind of made my... More

Awesome history and a must for Doc Holliday fans. Definitely a climb, but still doable for a "mildly" out-of-shape 300 lb. 39 y.o. male on a 65 dg F day with a touchy ankle. Use Google maps to find the initial trail from the street. Winding and steep but not insane. Take photo breaks along the way, and you'll be... More
