The Region

Connecting portions of Adams, Cumberland, Franklin, and York counties and covering approximately half a million acres, the South Mountain landscape is one of Pennsylvania’s more unique regions. The region’s most prominent geographic feature is the forested uplands of the South Mountain ridgeline, but fertile agricultural valleys shape this landscape as well. In fact, no single element or feature defines this region of south-central Pennsylvania, but rather it’s the unique convergence of diverse natural and cultural elements that makes this landscape so special.
