We left our hotel room and drove a few minutes to the trail head for Linwood Cemetery in search of Doc Holliday's grave. The flyer we had said he was buried somewhere in the cemetery. The walk from the trailhead was uphill at a moderate climb. We enjoyed the elevation from street level to the top of the hill where... More

It is a cemetery. Please keep that in mind. If you wanted to know now you know. You walk up a dirt road. There is an area where folks have been buried. Marked graves as well as an area where there are no markers for the folks that have passed. Interesting though.

My trip to Glenwood Springs took place after my year long cancer battle so I was not in the best of shape. Combine that with the fact that I am from Texas and not use to the elevation and this was a bit of a hard climb for me. There was a bench half way up with a great overview.... More

This may not be the exact burial location, but this is still worth the climb in my opinion. It's fun to think back on history and imagine how things were in a different time. Be aware that there are no rails, etc along the climb. So if you have little ones with you, keep them to the inside. Mine were... More

We did early in the morning. Its in the middle of a neighborhood "with really pretty houses". you walk a steep incline to a gravel trail that heads up yo the cemetery and Doc Holidays grave. There is interesting facts to read about the outlaws and the views are really nice. Well worth it.

A good stop on our way through glenwood springs. The hike is short but steep, however, it has great views of the iron red mountains and of glenwood springs itself.

We ended up there because there was no parking at Hanging Lake and I was determined to hike. I am a huge fan of history, and I like old cemeteries anyway. The star of the show is Doc Holliday's marker, but even if you aren't a history fan, it's a really cool mountain cemetery. It's laid out with winding trails... More

We hiked up to the cemetery to burn off some energy when we got to Glenwood. The kids learned some western history and stretched their legs.

We did the hike on a rainy day, so it wasn't too hot. The trailhead sits in a neighborhood, we parked on the street. The hike to the cemetary is half a mile uphill on a dirt/rocky trail. I am not used to the altitude but found it doable especially since there are benches to rest and enjoy the view.... More
