Brown Mountain is a low-lying ridge, approximately 1.5 miles (2.4 km) long, in the Pisgah National Forest near Morganton, in western North Carolina, on the border of Burke and Caldwell Counties.

Since at least the early 20th century, mysterious illuminations known as the Brown Mountain Lights have been seen there.
