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. Recently worked was completed by volunteers to add a new trail and three picnic areas.
