— Coastal Habitats —Mount Mitchill, at an elevation of 266 feet above sea level, is the highest natural point on the Atlantic Seaboard between southern Maine and the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico. Cartographers (map makers) named the prominence, located in the southwest corner of the park, in honor of Dr. Samuel Latham Mitchill (1764-1831), a New York physician, naturalist, educator, and U. S. Congressman. Mitchill was part of an 1816 expedition to measure the height of the Navesink Highlands.
