Geocache Description:

A family-friendly cache hidden along the Patterson Trail in historic Carnifex Ferry Battlefield State Park south of Summersville, West Virginia.

For more details on the history, attractions and facilities of this fine state park, please visit their official web site: CLICK HERE.

To get to the park, from U.S. Route 19 go west on State Route 129 for about 5 miles. Then turn left onto Carnifex Ferry Road. From there it is about one mile to the park. There are several parking areas, but the one closest to the cache is at the playground/picnic shelters. There is a connector path to Patterson Trail directly behind the rest rooms. If you are searching during the winter months and find this area closed, turn right at the gate onto County Route 23 (Eakin Road). After a short distance, you will see a parking area on the right. Just beyond this is where Patterson Trail crosses the road. Just follow your GPS from there.

The cache is a 1.2 qt. Lock & Lock container with an orange West Virginia State Parks "Official Geocache" sticker. Initial contents are: 2 cosmetic samples, 2 glass "gems", golf ball, luggage tag, toy rabbit, whistle, waving bird, badge clip, 3 foreign coins, toy soldier, keyboard adaptor, novelty eraser, and a log book with pen.

SPECIAL NOTE: The West Virginia Division of Natural Resources discourages off-trail hiking in state parks as it negatively impacts the environment. This cache is hidden just a few feet off the trail, so please refrain from taking shortcuts or engaging in unnecessary bushwhacking during your search.
