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

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

We had great weather for March and walked to the grave which quite a hike from the pool side of Glenwood. Once you get to the entrance of the trail to Linwood Cemetery it is a fairly steep hike up to the cemetery...glad we did not do that in the summer. It was interesting to investigate the history of Doc... More

My boyfriend & I spent last weekend in Glenwood Springs. We found Doc Holiday's grave to be a really neat piece of history & enjoyed the easy hike up to the cemetery.

I'm not the hiking fan, nor do I really care to go to graveyards but I marr a mountain goat that's a history fanatic ;) It was a beautiful hike especially with the fall colors in full swing! When you get up to the top there's a gorgeous view of the valley!

Well maintained and preserved. Be sure to check out other graves in the area too. We were alone on our visit and encountered some dangerous wildlife so be sure to take some protection.
