Geography

Coudersport is located at 41°46′26″N 78°1′7″W / 41.77389°N 78.01861°W / 41.77389; -78.01861 (41.773903, -78.018559).[2]

According to the United States Census Bureau, the borough has a total area of 5.7 square miles (14.7 km²), all of it land.

Coudersport lies in a broad valley the joining of Allegheny and Mill Creek rivers. It is surrounded by the great hilltop plateaus of the Allegheny highlands. Highways enter north and south on Pennsylvania Route 44, the very old Jersey Shore (log road)Turnpike, and from west to east on U.S. Route 6, the "Grand Army of the Republic Highway", which had been long a major mid-east-states east-west corridor before Inter-State highways of late 1950s. The most noted hilltops, located here on this plateau, are Dutch Hill stretching southeastly, and Vader Hill stretching southwestly. The Allegheny river makes a quick turn at this point, going from North to West; for that reason these features are distinctly individual from afar in the broad turning valley, and rise 2400–2500 feet above sea-level.
