This cache is part of the “DCNR - Legacy of Conservation” Geocaching Trail (see “Related Web Page” link above). Collect all the Pennsylvania Legacy of Conservation cards – one from each of the 30 caches in the trail – and show them all at one of the validation centers to receive a Legacy of Conservation geocoin (non-trackable). This geotrail will be archived on June 30, 2013.
Lyman Run State Park was named for Major Isaac Lyman, an American Revolutionary War soldier believed to be the second permanent settler in Potter County. In 1809, Lyman built his home in nearby Lymansville (now Ladonna), east of present day Coudersport. Beginning in the 1880’s, the area was logged repeatedly for different species of trees, finally ceasing in 1913. The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania purchased the land in and around Lyman Run for forest fire and watershed protection in the 1920s. In the 1930s, the Civilian Conservation Corps built Camp S-88 in the area that currently is the park maintenance area. The young men of the camp completed forestry improvements and road construction projects. Toward the end of World War II, the camp housed German prisoners-of-war. After the war, the camp seasonally housed migrant workers who harvested the local potato crop. Construction of Lyman Run Dam began in 1951, with the park opening to the public in 1955. The Labyrinth spillway was put in when the dam was re-built in 2009. The unusual design of the spillway, an extended “W” style, allows more surface area for water to flow over the spillway while taking up a shorter linear distance. You can catch a glimpse of the labyrinth on your way to the cache, thus “Labyrinth View”. Okay, on to the cache: The ATV trail will lead you to the spot – you can access the cache directly from the trail. Practice good caching techniques and don’t leave any trace of your hunt for the next geocacher.
