Description 

Dundee Mountain is a kame, a cone-shaped mound composed of glacial debris, left by the last glacier about 12,000 years ago. When the receding glacier was melting, pools of water carried glacial till that formed moraines, drumlins, eskers and various other features, including cone-shaped kames. Dundee Mountain is such an example.

It is a part of the Kettle Moraine State Forest and the summit (1,201 feet above sea level, about 250 feet above grade) is accessible via a hiking trail. (Fees are required.)

Nearby is a state visitor center that describes glacial history through interpretive signage.

The nearby town of Dundee has a reputation of being a center of UFO activity.
