Appalachian Mountains States

Appalachian Mountains States


Alabama represents the southernmost region of the Appalachian mountains, and the whole northern part of this state has some mountain range. About the top third of Alabama houses some Appalachian Mountain range.


Georgia has a small portion of the Appalachian Mountains, and the range can be found in the northern part of the state, extended from the western border to the eastern.


Although more southern, a portion of the Appalachian Mountains resides in the northernmost parts of Mississippi. The mountains branch into about 20% of the state.


Positioned toward the western side of this mountain range, about 50% of Kentucky has the Appalachian Mountains. The eastern side of this state borders this mountain range.


Even though there is just a tiny amount of the Appalachian Mountains running through Maryland, there is still enough to include this state on the list of Appalachian Mountains states. The very far western regions of Maryland have some of the famous mountain range.

New York

Although the Appalachian Mountains are more southern, the very northern tip of the mountain range extends into southern New York.

North Carolina

While North Carolina may have other famous mountains and forested areas in the state, a portion of the Appalachian Mountains runs through North Carolina. Along the far western border, the mountains can be found running from the northern to the southern border.


Bordering Pennsylvanian and West Virginia, Ohio has some Appalachian Mountains running along the eastern border of this state. Although the mountains do not penetrate far into the state, they run the entire north to the south range of eastern Ohio. About 25% of Ohio is dedicated to the Appalachian Mountains.


Much of Pennsylvania can attribute its hilly and diverse landscape to the Appalachian Mountains. The majority of the state has the Appalachian Mountain range running through it, ranging from the entire western border to parts of the eastern edge. About 75% of the state can claim some part of the Appalachian Mountains.

South Carolina

Although pretty far south, just a small part of the Appalachian Mountains touches South Carolina. The very furthest north and western tip of South Carolina has just a tiny part of the Appalachian Mountains running through the state.


Positioned more to the western part of the United States, about half of Tennessee is occupied by the Appalachian Mountains. The entire eastern part of the state has the Appalachian mountains running through the state.


Although Virginia is more eastern than much of the Appalachian Mountains range, a portion of the mountains still runs through this state. The very western side of the state, positioned under West Virginia, has some of the most dramatic and beautiful peaks in the Appalachian Mountains range.

West Virginia

West Virginia is a beautiful, hilly, and forested area of the country, and this is largely because the Appalachian Mountains run through the entire state. Touching the most northern and southern border and ranging from east to west, the Appalachian Mountains dominate the landscape and topography throughout West Virginia.
