Geocache Description:

Bicycle is suggested method of transportation. Roughly 2.75 miles from cache-mobile parking "n back". Please be watchful of Muggles at all times and CITO is appreciated.
 


Enjoy a little bike ride along the Lower Trail. (Or hike.....or horse ride) Parking can be found at the Mt Etna Station. N 40 31.228 W 078 10.304. This is a Three Stage Multi Cache that will give you the chance to explore Four Bridges: A Stone Arch Bridge, Two Railroad Bridges, and a small Covered Bridge. Maybe bring along your fishing gear to toss a line into the Frankstown Branch of the Juniata River.   

STAGE 1: This will bring you to the Stone Arch Bridge. Be sure to take a few minutes to take in this great engineering. 
Look for the well worn path that has a rope "hand rail" leading you down below the bridge. Once down at the base of the bridge, your search will begin here for coordinates to Stage 2....N 40 31.???  W 078 10.???
NO NEED TO CROSS CREEK. You are looking for a brass tag. Search between the cracks of the bridge stones.

STAGE 2: You are looking for a silver bison tube that you most likely won't see at first. May have to reach in to spot it. You don't have to go under the bridge....but close to it. No need to get muddy or go into the small creek. You will receive coordinates to Stage 3.....N 40 31.???  W 078 10.???
IMPORTANT: At Stage 2, you will receive a Secret Code and the Only Hints given for Stage 3. Remember them!!

STAGE 3: 30 cal Ammo Can. Pay Attention at Stage 2!

Pictures and great reports are encouraged! But please do not give away locations and details. Thanks and Enjoy!

There is a FirstToFind Ammo Can Pin for the first to sign the log, some trade swag including flashlights, and two Travel Bugs in the cache to start off.
