Naked Mountain is a nearly 2,000-foot feature on the western edge of the central Virginia Piedmont. 18 years after purchasing an initial 300 acres, including the summit, Naked Mountain was placed under a conservation easement with the Natural Heritage Program, a division of the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation.

Today, Naked Mountain is the 49th natural area preserve in Virginia. The changing pictures on the header are of the Blue Ridge Mountains viewed from a house deck and the spectacular flora and fauna that dwell on the mountain.
