Once home to vast iron plantations the landscape now beckons you to explore.
The Schuylkill Highlands is one of seven Conservation Landscape Initiative regions
in Pennsylvania and includes the majority of the Schuylkill River Watershed, the southeastern
most section of the Pennsylvania Highlands and the Hopewell Big Woods - the largest
remaining unbroken forest in southeastern Pennsylvania.
