Michael Mountain, in Greenbrier County and Pocahontas County, runs southwest to northeast following the general trend of the Appalachian Mountains. Part of the Appalachian Valley & Ridge Region, the mountain is dramatically folded. Where Knapp's Creek cuts a gorge across the mountain, this fold has been exposed as a rock formation known locally as Devils Backbone.
