On North Milam just at the outskirts of town you will make a left turn into Cross Mountain Park.
Cross Mountain is located on a historic marl and limestone hill with an elevation of 1951 ft. It was used as an Indian lookout prior to early settlers. In 1847 during the settling of Fredericksburg a timber cross was found on the hilltop. Early Fredericksburg pioneers gave this hill the name “Kreuzberg” or Cross Mountain. In 1946, the permanent lighted cross was raised. Currently there is a Master Conceptual Plan for additional trails, picnic sites, and vista overlooks but at this time the project is unfunded.
