So the town fathers are almost certain that Doc Holliday is buried in Glenwood Springs and they are very sure he is buried in Linwood Cemetery but they don't really know where he is actually buried so they erected this grave marker. So, in the end, it's a tourist trap that is probably somewhat authentic. And it's a good walk... More

I love old historical things and this place was perfect for that. A glimpse into what life was like 100 years ago.

Lovely hike to the cemetery in the A M, good for children too! Although the actual site is lost in time, I still enjoyed seeing the marker and the other old grave sites. There is a ribbon tree on the way up, along with good views of Glenwood Springs.

It was a nice warm up hike heading up to the gravesite. The graveyard is well marked and fills you in with the history of some of the occupants. Doc's grave is interesting to view even if he really isn't there. For the kids I am told there is Pokémon gym in the graveyard as well. It is well worth... More

Fairly strenuous hike to the top of Glenwood Springs. Small Potter's Field cemetery with a monument to Doc Holliday and Kid Curry but no one really knows if Doc was actually buried there or exactly where. Be sure to wear good shoes for hiking - fairly rocky and steep.

We were touring the area with out of town family and decided this would be a good thing for them to see. The trail is still as rustic as always but the cemetery was well maintained. We saw a prayer tree on the trail up - Quite colorful. I even managed to bag a geocache up there (not too far... More

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
