BLACK MOUNTAIN Mother of Today

Black Mountain forms the State line between Kentucky and Virginia for much of the border's length.  The mountain is shaped like the fork of a sling shot.  In the east it begins where it joins Indian Mountain end to end.  High above Flat Gap it runs for a mile or two due west.  At the "Round" it makes a ninety degree turn to the south to the side of the head of Roaring Fork, and then turns slowly to the southwest before it divides into the prongs of the sling shot.  At the "Doubles" half way along Black Mountain's length, Little Black Mountain splits off the larger northern fork.  The State line follows Little Black to Pennington Gap, where it jumps over to Stone Mountain.  The main fork of the sling shot goes to the beginning of the Cumberland River, at the City of Harlan, Kentucky.  The hollow between the crotch of the sling shot is Bush Hollow, and its main off shoot is Razor Fork.  The Clover Fork of the Cumberland River starts in Bush Hollow, and flows to Harlan, where it joins the Poor Fork of the Cumberland, which starts on the Kentucky side of Flat Gap.
