Geocache Description:

Murrysville's Pleasant Valley Park is a large, (265 acre) natural area containing woodlands, open fields, hilltops and remote valleys. Within the park there are over five miles of well maintained trails and old farm roads that are ideal for hiking, mountain biking and cross-country skiing. Hunting is allowed at this park. Please wear the appropriate orange clothing when geocaching during PA hunting season.


Using the various trails and old farm roads available; you should choose a route from the parking lot to the area of the cache. By trails, the shortest route to the cache is over a half-mile. If you take another route, the walk will be considerably longer. If you find yourself on the wrong trail; please backtrack, don't bushwack or walk on steep slopes.

For variety, try a different route back to the parking lot. Take some time to enjoy the natural beauty of this park. You could see deer, red fox, snakes, and many different types of birds. In March and early April you may see the courtship dance of woodcocks in the meadow South of the farm road (beyond the pond). In the Summer the fields of wildflowers attract many butterflies.

The Murrysville Trail Alliance is developing and maintaining the trails in PV Park. Help is needed in this effort. In 2010 volunteers meet at the parking lot thursdays at 6:30 PM during Spring and Summer to work on Trails . Please join us!

For more information, visit the PV Park web site at www.pvpark.org. There is a trail map in the bulletin board at the parking lot. (N 40 24.623 W 79 41.371)

Take care when entering or leaving the parking lot since vehicles travel fairly fast on Pleasant Valley Rd..

The cache is a regular sized ammo box. Please rehide just as you found it.
