West Virginia, United States
Sleepy Creek Mountain forms the border between Morgan and Berkeley Counties. Together with Third Hill Mountain, the two mountains contain between them Sleepy Creek Lake and the Sleepy Creek Wildlife Management Area. Sleepy Creek and Third Hill Mountains are distinctive for their height in the relatively level terrain of the far Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia.
The southern end of Sleepy Creek Mountain, Shockeys Knob (1,873 feet/571 m), lies in northern Frederick County, Virginia and is shared by Berkeley and Morgan Counties in West Virginia. The mountain continues southwest northeast between the two counties and peaks again at High Rock (1,811 feet/552 m). Sleepy Creek Mountain is conjoined with Third Hill Mountain at "Locks-of-the-Mountain". From "Locks-of-the-Mountain", the Meadow Branch of Sleepy Creek is formed flowing northward between the two mountain ridges. North of this point, Sleepy Creek Mountain reaches its highest summit at 1,905 feet (580 m). East of Johnsons Mill, Whites Gap (1,492 feet/454 m) is formed in mountain. With Sleepy Creek on its western flank, and Meadow Branch to its eastern flank, Sleepy Creek Mountain is then located entirely in Morgan County. Sleepy Creek Mountain's northern end lies at the confluence of Sleepy Creek and its Meadow Branch with Devils Nose as its most northern summit.
Like most ridges of the Appalachian Ridge-and-Valley Province, Sleepy Creek Mountain is entirely forested with its woodlands consisting of oaks, hickories, and Virginia pine. Deer, wild turkey, grouse, squirrel, and raccoon are all prevalent species on the mountain ridge.
