Cross Mountain

Cross Mountain has historical significance to Fredericksburg, Texas. The early German settlers in the Hill Country town reportedly found an old wooden cross on top of the hill that may have been left by earlier Spanish explorers who passed through the Texas Hill Country. As a result, this area became known as Kreuzberg (Cross Mountain). The original cross has been lost to history, but today a large metal cross stands in its place.

The City of Fredericksburg, which owns the property, has plans to develop the park and add facilities in the future. A master plan has been developed, but its implementation has not yet been funded and may be a few years away.

Cross Mountain stands 1,951 feet above sea level and offers a panoramic view of Fredericksburg, Texas.
