Brooding Hill is the second cliff found on the opposite side of Beach City and the Crystal Temple, which is located where the other cliff holding the Lighthouse is. From there, one can view all of Beach City, the surrounding ocean and beach, the Lighthouse, and the Crystal Temple located on the opposite end of the hill itself away from view, only showing a limb missing a hand.

Beach City, as seen from the Brooding Hill in Full Disclosure.

In "Lars and the Cool Kids", Steven is told that Rose Quartz planted magic moss on the hill, and had tended to it on the hill each spring before she gave up her physical form. Later, Lars and Steven bring the moss-covered Jenny Pizza, Buck Dewey, and Sour Cream to the top of the hill in Jenny's Car. After they reach the top, the sun comes out from the clouds, and the moss blooms into pink blossoms which float down to Beach City below. All five then marvel at the view of Beach City and the blossoms.
