Fodor's Review

At 1,530 feet, this is one of the first places in the United States to see the sun's rays at daybreak. It is the highest mountain on the eastern seaboard north of Brazil. Hundreds of visitors make the trek to see the sunrise or—for those less inclined to get up so early—sunset. From the smooth summit you have a stunning 360-degree view of the jagged coastline that runs around the island. The only structures at the top are restrooms and a small gift shop, which sells coffee and snacks. The road up the mountain is closed December–mid-May.
