a) Actual summit elevation is not 4,000 feet or higher; i.e., there is an error in the USGS data base; e.g., Pike Knob, which is only 3187 feet, not 5137 as listed in the USGS data.2. The links to these features are as taken from the list generated from USGS data. Be aware that they are likely to off by a considerable amount and, to see them with a 25,000 scale, you may have to use a medium or large map for both the feature and the map center to be seen in one view.In some cases the inaccuracy of the coordinates link is noted in comments, but many where there is no mention of this also have inaccurate coordinates.
b) The col is not sufficiently deep to satisfy the 200 foot col depth rule; e.g., Pine Mountain.
c) The listed entry is really the mountain range and not a specifically named summit. In some cases, a specifically named summit is also listed, making the “mountain” listing redundant. An examples is Buck Mountain which is also listed as High Rock. The latter is in the “qualified” list. In cases where the summit is not specifically named there is an argument for using the name of the mountain range, but I have chosen not to do so. An exampe is Z0027VA which is on Garden Mountain. There are eight 4,000 foot qualifying summits on Garden Mountain, yet it is listed at 3200 feet. By my reasoning, it should not be listed as a summit named “Garden Mountain”. Also, the typeface and type size used are not consistent with that used for summit names.
d) The listed entry is only a lower elevation spur or, in some cases, just a location on the slope of a real peak; e.g., Buzzard Rock.
e) The summit is actually in West Virginia, clearly not in Virginia; e.g. Snowy Mountain.
