Doc Holliday in Glenwood Springs

John Henry "Doc" Holliday is buried in Pioneer (formerly Linwood) cemetery in Glenwood Springs, Colorado. The cemetery is reached by a short trail up the side of a mountain, offering gorgeous views of the city and canyon carrying Route 82 heading toward Aspen.

It is not certain that the grave you see is where Holliday is in fact buried. The exact location was lost decades ago and the cemetery. Still, as the marker says, he is buried somewhere in the cemetery.

Take Route 82 and turn east on 11th street, drive two blocks to Bennett street, turn south and looking for the trailhead on your left. Very well marked. Wear sturdy walking shoes and bring a camera.
