Abstract

The Rough Mountain Roadless Area comprises about 9,300 acres of George Washington National Forest land in the Valley and Ridge province in west-central Virginia. The area, which is about 6 mi long and 2 mi wide, is in Bath and Alleghany Counties, about 3 mi south of Millboro Springs, Va. (Index Map). State Route 42 forms part of the western boundary of the area, the Cowpasture River forms part of the southern boundary and the Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad and Pads Creek form the eastern boundary. The northern boundary follows the crests of two small ridges that lead east and west from the main ridgeline of Rough Mountain.
