Green Mountain is part of the overall limestone formation of the Huntsville Mountain range that extends south from the Monte
Sano Mountain area. Interestingly, the USGS map shows Green Mountain and Huntsville Mountain as distinct "mountains" being separated by Blevins Gap at an elevation around 1,190 feet (thus there is some prominence). Although the majority of the mass and top width of Green Mountain is far to the south, the narrow eroded ridge line near the gap supports the actual highpoint of the mountain at a peak elevation higher than the 1,520 contour. Of the two candidate "peaks" on the narrow ridge, the northern one indicated appeared slightly higher by observation. The next highest nearest neighbor is Huntsville Mountain which has a top around 1,550 (about 30 feet higher) and thus, the saddle at Blevins Gap is the col.
