Features

  1. Hiking Trail
  2. Mountain Bike Trails
  3. Nature Area
Located on the southwest edge of Fayetteville in Washington County, Kessler Mountain reaches 1,856 feet above sea level. The area consists of steep bluffs and rock-covered woodlands with miles of nature trails that traverse through stands of old-growth forest, rock out-croppings and many native flora and fauna species. The area presents approximately 376 acres of undeveloped land to the public for a variety of recreation including hiking, birding, mountain biking, nature watching and relaxing. Patrons are requested to sign a log at the parking lot to help the city document the area’s use.

The trails total approximately 7 miles in length.

NOTE: Last Call Trail, from the lower intersection of Terrapin Station Trail to the upper intersection with Terrapin Station near the bluff line, is closed to allow the trail tread to recover from significant damage it received through heavy use during wet winter and spring conditions.  Re-opening is tentatively scheduled for mid-June.
