Peach Bottom Mountain is typical of the southern Appalachians. It's a long, undulating ridge that runs for many miles, marked by gaps and peaks, some of which are named. Some of the higher parts of Peach Bottom Mountain break 4,000 feet, but its base rises from a relatively high area of 2,500 to 3,000 feet. Peach Bottom does dominate the area of Allegheny County in which it is located, being one of the higher mountains in the vicinity. In addition, it offers great views of Mount Rogers to the north (the highest peak in Virginia), and the high country of Tennessee to the west and the North Carolina peaks that rise all about it. As far as I know, all of Peach Bottom Mountain is privately owned, the higher ridges alternating between pasture and forest land.

Getting There

Many roads in the Sparta area travel around the slopes of Peach Bottom Mountain. However, since it's all privately owned, access is by permission only.

Red Tape

I list this mountain only as a landmark, not to frustrate any would-be visitors. Access would be limited, as it seems to be in private hands (various owners). As far as I know, the mountain is completely privately owned and I know of no part of it that is owned by the state or federal government. Some of the area is posted. My wife owns acreage there, and I used to be able to access the peak via land owned by a friend who has since died.

When To Climb

Any season, provided one asks permission of the landowner.


No camping. Privately held land.
