Geocache Description:

This geocache is part of the Taylor County Geotrail, a series of 11 geocaches launched in the Grafton area during Fall 2015.

Since the 1930s, Tygart Lake has provided a source of recreation for North Central West Virginia. The West Virginia Division of Natural Resources manages the 391-acre Tygart Lake State Park near the dam to provide camping, hiking, and overnight lodging options.
