Geocache Description:

This cache is part of the SRCP Series, taking you to all of the conservation projects funded through the Pike County Scenic Rural Character Preservation Program. Take time to enjoy the natural wonders and learn more about the Pike County Scenic Rural Character Preservation Program at srcp.pikepa.org.


Print your SRCP Series Passport to receive a limited edition SRCP Geocoin when you find all nine (9) SRCP geocaches (while supplies last). First 25 geocoins are a special gold finish. Get your passport here.

This 486-acre property was formerly owned by the Boy Scouts of America (thus you'll find evidence of camping structures). Working with the Natural Lands Trust and the Pike County Commissioners, state and county SRCP funding was used to acquire these lands and transfer them to the Commonwealth for inclusion in the Delaware State Forest. The lands are presently owned and managed by the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR)

You know the expression, "All good things require a little effort"? That is exactly the case on this property. The geocache has been placed near a very cool glacial erratic (very typical of Pike County, PA) that is a great reminder of the glacial activity that once scoured this region. Its warming recession created a phenomenal water feature that you can catch a glimpse of when you reach GZ. The view is breathtaking, the water pristine, and I highly recommend checking it out after you've located the cache.
