I was not expecting much from the trek except to see Doc Holiday's grave. There was much to explore and learn up there. It is a little bit of a climb. The view of town of the way back down was beautiful too.

This trail was right behind the house that we were renting and so we ran up it several times while we were there. The cemetery is small and even though it's signed, I didn't find the signs particularly enlightening but the trail is nice for...More

Note: Doc Holliday's actual resting place in the cemetary is unknown. They have erected a memorial for him in a prime location. Interesting to walk around the cemetary and observe the gravestones from this era, ages of people when they passed. Worth the short hike...More

Arranged my vacation around this stop. I needed to pay my respects to Doc Holliday. There is a lot of speculation on Doc's location but the stop is still worth it. The hike is a little steep but my elderly mother managed it so I...More

Our last day in Glenwood Springs, we hiked to Linwood Cemetery. It was much more steep than I had expected and wished I had brought some water! The view is amazing and it was fun visiting such a historical place.

Ok, so its more of a walk than I expected. You can't drive up and see the cemetery. If you are expecting a hike, its a nice one - not too difficult and you get amazing views once there. Its also cool to see Doc's...More
