      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.
