The Mountain is an ecologically-conscious retreat and learning center located on 4,200 foot high granite cliffs on the Eastern Continental Divide in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Situated in Highlands, the highest elevated city in the Blue Ridge Mountains, it’s one of the few temperate rainforests in North America. Only majestic White Oaks can thrive at this elevation making it known as a “Wind Forest”   In gratitude to the unique ecology and history of the oldest mountains in the world, this will be an opportunity to refresh your spirit in the natural beauty of these ancient mountaintops.
