Be sure to wear good hiking shoes and bring some water. It's not an easy hike for some folks as it is a pretty steep climb. If you enjoy history, you will enjoy this historic paupers cemetery. I found it worth the climb.

We did this in March, some wet areas/snow on trail. Steep climb. Lots of old graves to review and take pix. This was worth the short hike, tho steep. If you go now, check for ticks when you're done. Good views of town and surrounding...More

If you're hoping to visit the site where one of the west's most colorful and enduring characters is buried you might be mildly disappointed when you get there. It seems that while they're sure Doc Holiday is buried in Linwood Cemetery, they don't have any...More

Fun little hike, we found it funny that they don't actually know where Doc Holliday is buried. Had fun wandering around the graveyard, great view of Glenwood!

This graveyard is always an interesting hike and place to visit. Take paper and a pencil and do some tombstone tracings on your paper. There's many interesting tombstones to see.

there are fantastic views at the top of the mountain. Interesting to see the different graves. The monument to Holliday is just that not the actual grave as that is somewhere else in the graveyard. It is quite a strenous walk up to the cemetary...More

Who doesn't like history of the old west and who hasn't heard of Doc Holliday? If you are in Glenwood Springs and want a chance to see some local history it is well worth the hike.

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

One person said it was a fake, but I have a book written by one of Doc Holliday's cousins, Karen Holliday Tanner that states he was buried there. Is there any other documentation that this really is the gravesite? Might be going there in a couple of weeks. Thanks

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.
