Finding your place. 

The Pennsylvania Wilds is a big place, spanning approximately 25% of PA’s geography (that’s roughly the size of Massachusetts). So we’ve broken the region into Landscapes – thematic regions of the Pennsylvania Wilds, each with their own character and unique, place-specific experiences.

As a member of the Wilds Cooperative (with a public facing operation) you will become part of the listing backbone on pawilds.com.
