As anyone travels throughout the area they are sure to notice mountains most everywhere. By looking at maps they can even find out the names of the mountains. Some mountains appear to not have names. We are wondering if anyone knows the name of the mountainous terrain north of Rumford Point and Route 2. The series of peaks are over 1,400 feet in elevation and takes up much of area going toward Rumford Center and the Andover Road. Got any ideas? Please let us know.
