Make sure to take bug spray during mosquito season. Great for a good walk and lots to see. Also not hard to get to from major highway or from coming out of opposite side of Bangor.

About a mile around the perimeter. So much history and beautiful landscaping. It's where the locals go to walk and enjoy nature.

Very nice cemetary. It's pretty big, you could probably walk for hours and still not see everything. We loved the calm of the place.

The Mount Hope Cemetery is easy to locate. Driving through the property is permitted and plenty of roads. The cemetery is large and there are a lot of old stones on the property. It is well maintained

Fantastic location as sun is setting. The hills and small ponds make it one of a kind. Large old grave markers and lots of Civil War participants and monuments.
