The USGS only recognizes mountains over 1,000 feet in elevation as real mountains in the U.S. and this is one of them! The views are stunningly BREATHTAKING! Prickly Pear Mountain is part of the Watery Mountains Range, so you receive the benefits of 1,000+ acres surrounding you in nature conservancy. This 52 acres offers elite privacy and security. It is wooded with rare black walnut trees and is one of only two properties in Virginia that holds a conservation easement with the Wildlife Land Trust of the United States Humane Society, making it a wildlife sanctuary and you may often see eagles soaring overhead. There is a LINE-OF-SIGHT to Washington D.C., Tyson’s Corner, Manassas and the northern range of the Blue Ridge from Charlottesville to Linden for excellent satellite or relay signal communications purposes. This mountain is rich in history and many of the most revered presidents and industrialists have enjoyed their mountain tops as a great escape to peace and tranquility. Drink the pristine mountain water and breathe crisp clean air year-round. Unlike valley and pasture areas where smoke and pollution can settle, the mountain tops always have fresh clean air circulation across them. Mountains over 1,000 feet in elevation often have blue skies and sunshine while the valleys are clouded with fog and rain.
