Ice Mountain is the best example of a glaciere talus within the region, supporting the richest collection of boreal vascular plants of any known cold-air site in the Appalachian Ranges. The Ice Mountain site appears to host a relict Pleistocene Refugium, most likely intact since the onset of near-modern climate conditions at the end of the Pleistocene over 10,000 years ago.
