Mount Hope Cemetery Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Follow a path through the final resting place of more than 350,000 people, and discover the captains of industry and crusaders for human rights who once lived and worked in Rochester. Quiet, peaceful, and remarkably picturesque, Mount Hope Cemetery offers one of the most fascinating and informative hiking experiences in Rochester—and for a city
with as many hiking trails as this one, that’s quite a statement.
Shaded with hundred-year-old trees, crisscrossed with cobblestone and brick driving lanes, and dotted with more extravagant statuary than a Civil War battlefield, this remarkable cemetery provides a one-of-a-kind hiking adventure.
This fairly short walk packs considerable historical punch, taking you into the oldest part of the cemetery to discover the final resting places of women’s rights activist Susan B. Anthony."
