Bear Garden Mountain is a forested mountain ridge of the Ridge-and-valley Appalachians in Hampshire County, West Virginia and Frederick County, Virginia.


Bear Garden Mountain runs southwest–northeast from its northern terminus at Bear Garden run in northern Frederick County to its southern terminus at Mill Branch creek in Hampshire County, near Capon Bridge. A 2.5-mile (4.0 km) stretch of the ridge, starting 3 miles (4.8 km) south of its northern terminus, serves as the Virginia-West Virginia border.

The mountain is bisected by the Northwestern Turnpike (U.S. Route 50) to the east of Capon Bridge and by the Bloomery Pike (West Virginia Route 127/State Route 127) at Good.
