The cache owner writes the reason why he chose this location to place a geocache, “This cache is along the North Fork Mountain Trail, which has been considered the most scenic trail in West Virginia by OUTSIDE magazine and others. If this trail is the best for scenery in the state (I think it is), then Chimney Top would be the golden crown upon this king of trails.” Other geocachers agree. Nearly 80% of the Premium Members who logged this geocache rewarded it with a Favorite Point.
