About

Mount Withington is a high peak located in the San Mateo Mountains. Although it isnt the highest peak in the range, it is probably the most well-known. A good road leads to the summit of Mount Withington, where a fire lookout is located. From the top, there are good views of the whole area. Mount Withington is located in the Cibola National Forest and the Withington Wilderness Area. The Very Large Array (VLA) radio telescope observatory is located in the Plains of San Agustin just below Mount Withington. With a prominence of 2,315, Mount Withington is just big enough to make an appearance on the New Mexico Prominence Map.
