Morrisons Cove in the northern part of Bedford and southern part of Blair Counties, is one of the most beautiful limestone valleys in Central Pennsylvania.  Formerly known as "The Great Cove", it is often just referred to as "The Cove" by the people living there.  This 186-square mile fertile agricultural valley extends about thirty-nine miles long, varying from eight to fifteen miles wide. Stretching from Evitts Mountain near the town of  Loysburg, formerly known as Pattonsville, north to the Frankstown Branch of the Juniata River at Williamsburg, the Cove is surrounded on all sides by the distinct ridges of the Allegheny mountain chain, Tussey Mountain to the east, broken ranges or spurs to the north and south, and Dunnings, Short, Loop and Lock Mountains to the west. There are only three natural passes into Morrisons Cove: on the southern end in Bedford County at the Loysburg Gap, where Pennsylvania Route 36 and Yellow Creek passes from South Woodbury Township to Hopewell Township through Tussey Mountain; on the western side of the Cove in Blair County at the McKee Gap, formerly known as the Frankstown Gap, where Halter, Cabbage, and Plum Creeks empty into the Frankstown Branch of the Juniata River and Pennsylvania Route 36 passes from Taylor Township to Freedom Township, between the Dunnings and Short Mountains;  and on the northern end of the Cove at Williamsburg.
