What makes Muir Way maps of Pennsylvania unique?

When you purchase a map of Pennsylvania from Muir Way, you are not purchasing a mass-produced poster or a glossy print. We custom print every Pennsylvania map using archival inks and fine art paper certified to last 100 years. The artwork of our maps themselves is designed to bring new light to the beautiful terrain they feature. For example, our elevation maps incorporate hand-shaded relief and Digital Elevation Data with historical map terrain for a unique 3D effect on a flat surface, and our hydrological maps depict every river in the state--even intermittent streams--and every body of water over 0.2 miles in diameter in crisp detail. We create beautiful, heirloom-quality maps meant to last for generations.

Does my Pennsylvania map come framed?

It can! You can purchase your Pennsylvania map professionally custom-framed with real wood, or unframed if you prefer to use your own. If you’d like to purchase a framed Pennsylvania wall map, there are several different wood finishes to choose from. If you’d prefer to use your own frame, all of our maps come in standard sizes for easy gift giving.

Does a Muir Way map of Pennsylvania make a good gift?

Yes! Our custom-printed maps of Pennsylvania make the perfect gift for outdoor enthusiasts, to commemorate special occasions, or as a thank-you gift for someone special. Memorialize a visit to the state’s many Civil War or Colonial historical sites, or any of the other amazing Pennsylvania areas. One of our state relief maps can be a perfect graduation gift for a student about to leave home for the first time, or a reminder of home for someone from Pennsylvania but who no longer lives there. Our maps also make beautiful corporate gifts that will remind your clients or colleagues of you every time they see it.

Where should I display my Pennsylvania map?

Our maps are eye-catching from across the room and up close. Hang a framed wall map as a central focus or purchase several maps in a similar style or from a particular region and arrange them near each other for a complementary series. Our hydrological maps come in several colors or the classic black and white, and our geological relief maps feature vibrant colors. No matter which you choose, you’re sure to find a Pennsylvania map that will look right at home.

What are the different types of maps of Pennsylvania available on Muir Way?

Our Pennsylvania maps are available in several different styles, including:

Pennsylvania Relief maps - Our relief maps of Pennsylvania bring historical map landscapes together with modern technology to show the state’s landscapes in a new way. Using Digital Elevation Data and hand-shaded relief, we custom enhance vintage maps to create a 3D effect on a 2D surface. See Pennsylvania’s spectacular terrain in vibrant colors on our Pennsylvania 1960 Relief map or our Pennsylvania 1931 Relief map. Get a city level view with our Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 1960 Relief map.

Pennsylvania elevation maps - Our Pennsylvania elevation map uses Digital Elevation Data from the USGS and hand-shaded relief just like our relief maps to create a high-contrast 3-dimensional effect in stunning black and white.

Pennsylvania hydrological maps - Our hydrological maps showcase the intricate network of waterways, from sprawling lakes to narrow tributaries that flow into larger rivers. Trace Pennsylvania’s waterways on our Pennsylvania hydrological map and you’ll see every body of water greater than 0.2 mi in diameter. What makes our hydrological maps unique? We apply a method called the Strahler Stream Order to show the hierarchy of streams as they flow from their source, with rivers shown thicker as they acquire the flow of tributaries. Map available in black, blue, or green. Want to see the ‘big picture?’ See our Ohio Regional Hydrological map and our Mid Atlantic Regional Hydrological map.

Enhanced vintage Pennsylvania maps - Enjoy the history and charm of vintage maps in a new way with our Pennsylvania 1883 map. Unlike our elevation maps, Muir Way historical maps don’t feature enhanced elevation effects, but they do feature a record of history beautifully restored to retain its vintage charm without the wear and tear. Our vintage Pennsylvania maps are also custom printed using archival materials.

What are some prominent features on the map of Pennsylvania?

One of the most prominent natural features in Pennsylvania is Pine Creek Gorge. Sometimes called the Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania, it is a 47-mile long gorge that was carved into the Allegheny Plateau by Pine Creek.

Winding its way through eastern Pennsylvania is the Susquehanna River. One of the oldest rivers in the world, it is a major shipping route in the state.

In the north is the Lake Erie shore and Presque Isle. The state has seven miles of lake shoreline. Presque Isle is an arching, sandy peninsula that extends out into the lake. Filled with birds and other wildlife, the area contains seven ecological zones.

Hawk Mountain, part of the Blue Mountain Range, located in east central Pennsylvania. The area is known for beautiful scenery, hiking and camping. It is also home to Hawk Mountain Sanctuary, a wildlife sanctuary for raptor conservation.

What are the regions in Pennsylvania?

Pennsylvania has five main geographical regions:

  • Atlantic Coast Plain - This region covers the state’s southeastern corner. Philadelphia, the state’s largest city, sits in this lowland area. Rich with Revolutionary War history, you can visit the site where the Declaration of Independence was signed and see the Liberty Bell.
  • Piedmont - This area is characterized by rolling hills and ridges. The soil here is rich and much of the area is farmland.
  • Ridge and Valley - The Ridge and Valley region encompasses the Appalachian Mountain range and is punctuated by gaps and valleys. About 230 miles of the Appalachian Trail follows.
  • Allegheny Plateau - This is the state’s largest region and covers about half of its north and west sector. Characterized by hills and low mountains, more than half of the high plateau is forested.
  • Lake Erie Plain - This area is the smallest region in the state. It follows the Lake Erie shoreline and only extends a few miles inland.
