Brown Mountain is a 2,600-foot peak in the Pisgah National Forest in western North Carolina and is part of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The mountain is famed for being the site of unexplained nighttime lights that, according to local legend, have been appearing there for more than 800 years. Observation of the lights is best done at night from different overlook locations off of the mountain. The mountain and surrounding area have many trails for those interested in daytime recreation.
Located in Phoenix, Arizona, the Lookout Mountain Park is an attraction for those who like the idea of experiencing a scenic mountain hike in the Sonora Desert while staying in close range of a large metropolitan city. The park hosts two trails. The Circumference Trail is the easiest, making a loop around the Mountain peak. The Summit trail, although easy for a hiking trail, requires a little more effort as it climbs upward to the top of the mountain.
