Blue Mountain Peak stands at 7,402 feet high and features a series of ridges that run up and down the main ridge, branching off toward the sea and separating the Swift River from the Rio Grande. Visitors can take a guided or self-guided walk up to the base of the Blue Mountains to take in scenic views of the region, and climb up the Queensbury Ridge that starts from Blue Mountain Peak. According to the Adventures Great and Small travel company, travelers heading to the Blue Mountain range can also enjoy walks on the trails that lead to Catherine’s Peak and Mt. Horeb off Buff Bay Road.
