Nice views on the way to the grave marker. It’s just a grave marker for Doc Holiday. It’s not 100% certain where he is buried. Kid Curry is also here.

Wanted to see the famous gravestone and site of Doc Holliday. Beautiful, yet steep hike up the mountain. Once you get there you realize it was probably a poppers grave area during this period, yet historical none the less. See it if your a history...More

A great city-access hike (can be done in around an hour or less if you are in shape and hurry through the graveyard). Interesting and fun!

Took the short but uphill hike to Linwood Cemetery. It has some amazing views and there are a quite a few old graves. Unfortunately, they don’t know exactly where “Doc Holiday” is buried so his grave is just a marker. It’s a short hike and...More

This was a short 1/3 mike hike uphill to the cemetery. Good signage to guide you but bring water and sunscreen. The cemetery is nice as far as cemeteries go and you will easily find Doc’s market. Good history plaques along the way to educate...More

This is about a 25 minute walk from the downtown area. And while the destination is worth it on it's own, what really makes this truly worthwhile is the adorable neighborhood that you walk through to reach the cemetery where Doc Holiday is buried. Be...More

This was a fun day trip for the family. The hike is a bit steep at times, but was very doable for our group. The cemetery had many old grave stones and informational sights posted. The views are amazing.

It is a bit of a hike uphill on a rough track about 30 mins or so . It was snow covered when I did it but dry now. It is an old graveyard with good views down into the valley. If you can't walk much , then I would think it... More

Some sports team that was visiting and hiked up put the ribbons on the tree about three years ago. No active story. It was really pretty when it happened.
