The cache is about 20' off a trail where there is very nice view. Please make sure you re-hide the cache exactly where you found it. Total hiking distance is about 1.6 mi. round trip. If you find yourself on the wrong trail, please backtrack, don't bushwack or walk on steep slopes.
The park is mostly free of trash. Help keep it that way by carrying out any trash you notice.
The Murrysville Trail Alliance is developing and maintaining the trails in PV Park. Help is needed in this effort. Volunteers meet thursday at 6:30 PM in the park during Spring and Summer to work on trails . Please join us!
