Doc Holliday Grave & Hiking Trail

Glenwood Springs’ most famous gunslinger rests somewhere in Linwood Cemetery, though no one knows the exact location. Hike the short trail to “Doc’s” memorial marker and peruse other pioneer grave sites. The marker is typically adorned with mementos including coins and playing cards.

The life and times of John Henry “Doc” Holliday have become the stuff of American legend and folklore. Hiking to the Doc Holliday memorial marker is a must-do activity while visiting Glenwood Springs, Colorado. The dentist turned gambler and gunslinger died at age 36 from tuberculosis in Glenwood Springs in November of 1887. The famous friend of lawman Wyatt Earp, Doc hoped the hot springs vapors would cure him. Sadly, they did not.
