We weren't expecting this to be as far up the mountain as it ended up being, but was a cool old cemetery. :) Very pretty views and I love looking at the old tombstones.

A short hike to ease visitors into hiking and adjust to the altitude. The cemetery is a quaint place nestled on the side of the mountain. My 5 year old loved it.

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

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.
