The Pennsylvania Highlands is a 1.4 million acre region with quality drinking water, outstanding recreational opportunities, critical habitat for wildlife, productive farms and forests, and rural community character.
The Highlands are the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. Much of the Pennsylvania Highlands are comprised of the Reading Prong Geologic Formation.
The Pennsylvania Highlands features many historic resources of national and state significance. These areas tell a story about how humans have settled the region over the past 12,000 years.
The Pennsylvania Highlands Coalition and the Highlands Trail project are made possible thanks to our members, supporters and funders.
Businesses in and around the Pennsylvania Highlands region are an important part of the growing eco-tourism based economy.
