Mountain Lake

Mountain Lake is one of only two fresh water lakes in Virginia, and is the highest in elevation East of the Mississippi. The lake is approximately 6,000 years old and was formed along an active fault line when several earthquakes caused rock slides that dammed up the northern end of the valley.  The lake is fed by cold underground springs which rarely allow the temperature to rise above 70 degrees on the surface and 46 degrees on the bottom.  Due to a unique series of narrow channels and openings on the lake bottom the level has a history of rising and falling depending upon the direction of water flow through these channels to and from the icy-cold ground water lying deep beneath the surface of the earth.  The combination of these natural phenomena make Mountain Lake the only one of it's kind in existence!
