For the valley in northeastern Pennsylvania, see Mahoning Valley (Carbon County, Pennsylvania).

The Mahoning Valley is a geographic valley encompassing the area of northeast Ohio and northwest Pennsylvania that drains into the Mahoning River. The Mahoning and Shenango Rivers empties into the Beaver River, which empties into the Ohio River. The Mahoning River flows through Lawrence County and the Shenango River flows through Mercer County in Pennsylvania, and then the Mahoning River flows from Stark, Mahoning, Trumbull, and Portage counties in Ohio. The three main tributaries of the Mahoning River are Mosquito Creek, West Branch, and Eagle Creek, all in Ohio.

The area around Youngstown, Ohio, is often called the Mahoning Valley or the Steel Valley.[1]
