The Mountain is an exterior region in the northern part of Stardew Valley. Initially, there are only two exits: to the south leading to Pelican Town, and to the west leading to the Backwoods. However, over the course of the game, several events open up new routes:
- On Spring 5, debris blocking the bridge north of the lake is cleared, providing access to the Mines and the Adventurer's Guild.
- On Summer 3, an earthquake opens a pass north from the Mountain to the Railroad.
- The bridge leading to the Quarry at the east end of the map can be repaired (by completing all Crafts Room Bundles or purchasing "Bridge" from the Joja Community Development Form for 25,000g).
- The Glittering Boulder blocking the water flow west of the mine entrance can be removed (by completing all Fish Tank Bundles or purchasing "Panning" from the Joja Community Development Form for 20,000g).
|Carpenter's Shop||Located to the West, the Carpenter's Shop is where Robin runs her carpenter business. Her husband Demetrius and children Maru and Sebastian also live here in the attached house.|
|Tent||Northeast of the carpenter's shop; this is where Linus lives and spends much of his time.|
|Treehouse||Located on the Mountain, in a large tree east of the entrance of the Railroad, and west of Linus's tent. It is only available after reaching 6 hearts of friendship with Leo.|
|The Mines||Beyond the lake lies the entrance to a monster infested mine that is the primary source of stone and ores for the town.|
|Adventurer's Guild||Further along the path from the mines, Marlon and Gil reside here. Once access is gained, it provides a shop selling certain Weapons, Boots, and Rings. It also provides rewards for slaying monsters.|
|The Quarry||A large area beyond the broken bridge where stone and ore deposits are generated each day. It is unlocked upon completion of the Crafts Room Bundles in the Community Center or purchasing "Bridge" from the Joja Community Development Form for 25,000g. The entrance to the Quarry Mine is located here.|
