This list of ridges and summits of the Allegheny Mountains identifies geographic elevations for about 500 miles (800 km) from north central Pennsylvania, through eastern West Virginia and western Maryland, to western Virginia in the USA. The range of the Allegheny Mountains is part of the Ridge-and-Valley Appalachians, a physiographic region of the much larger Appalachian Mountain Range.
