North Mountain


North Mountain as seen from town

North Mountain may just look like a lower elevation mountain just north of town but it is so much more!  North Mountain is on its way to becoming a real destination!

Illustration of the restored North Mountain Lookout on North Mountain

Work continues for the restoration of North Mountain Fire Lookout by Friends of North Mountain and hoping to offer this historical building as a vacation rental by 2018.  There is a total panoramic view of the mountains from the cab constructed on a 41 foot tower.

Texas Pond in summer

The beautiful and historical Texas Pond is located on the north end of North Mountain and has one picnic area and one dispersed campsite.  This is a nice day destination or overnight if the campsite is available.  The campsite is on a first come first served bases.  The pond is also good fishing for bass and brook trout.

Whitehorse Mountain from Whitehorse Park

The Whitehorse Park is currently being planned and will be developed to become a very unique destination with wonderful mountain views, camping, ball fields and more.  The park will eventually connect with the Whitehorse Trail and be adjacent to the North Mountain Bike Park.
