This stop gives you a nice view of the Mirror Lake watershed. The two small peaks closest to the lake are Mount Whitney (tallest) and Cobble Hill (shortest). Cobble Hill is a great family hike accessible from the Northwood School campus!

Most of the land area that makes up the Mirror Lake watershed is located between these two peaks. As you can see, it is entirely forested, unlike this side of the watershed which is urbanized. The inlet to Mirror Lake comes from this area, providing the clean and clear water that helps keep Mirror Lake so beautiful and enjoyable.
