Jersey Mountain Road is Hampshire County, West Virginia's County Route 5. The road runs mostly atop or to the east of South Branch Mountain from Levels to the Northwestern Turnpike (U.S. Route 50) east of Romney. South Branch Mountain was originally named Jersey Mountain by the colonial settlers of the eighteenth century, hence the origins of the road's name. Beginning in the early 1900s, tens of thousands of acres of fruit orchards have operated along Jersey Mountain Road making it a central region in the county's fruit growing industry.
