Geography[edit]

The township occupies the southwest corner of Franklin County, bordered to the west by Fulton County and to the south by Washington County in the state of Maryland.

The southern boundary is the Mason–Dixon line.

The settled part of the township occupies the space between the two mountains, known as Little Cove Valley, drained to the south by Little Cove Creek, a tributary of Licking Creek, which flows south across Maryland to the Potomac River. Pennsylvania Route 456 runs the length of the township through the valley, leading north to Pennsylvania Route 16 in Peters Township, and continuing south in Maryland as unnumbered Hollow Road to Interstate 70 at the Potomac River.
