John B. Mountain

Click here for map location (PDF).

This 250′ mountain sits in the middle of 38 undeveloped acres along the edge of Eggemoggin Reach. A short loop trail takes you to the summit and past an old cemetery. The trail is steep and rocky in sections. A short spur trail heads down a broad and relatively level trail known as the “Old School House Road”. This trail ends at the conservation property line. Recently added is our newest Spur Trail to Long Cove, only 0.2 mi one way to a refreshing view of a tidal stream flowing into Horseshoe Cove.

Location and Parking

A small parking lot and the trailhead are located on the west side of Breezemere Rd. 0.8 miles from Rt.176. A larger parking lot is located 0.2 miles north of the trailhead and should be used for overflow parking.

Please note: The summit of John B. Mountain is home to a fragile natural community of shrubs, mosses and lichens. Please take extra care to stay on marked trails and leave the land as you found it.
