The park is located in the vicinity of Pocheon City and Yeoncheon-gun, Gyeonggi-do; the area is approximately 290㎢, which may vary depending on the calculation method. The geological and geographical features of Hantangang Geopark include: predominant development of volcanic topography as a result of volcanic activities during the fourth period of the Cenozoic Era; development of granite and basalt erosion topography along the Hantangang; formation of lava plateau from the activity of fissure eruption-type volcano; development of prehistoric culture based on such geographical features; and development and change of the river as a result of volcanic eruption.
