Pixie Mountain is a mountain in the North Carolina High Country, in the community of Linville. Its elevation reaches 4,058 feet (1,237 m). The mountain is adjacent to the Linville River.

The Linville Bypass (NC Hwy 181) goes around Pixie Mountain on its western side; while the majority of the Linville community is on its East and North. However, most people are blissfully unaware of the mountain's name since no signs and maps mention it.
