Geocache Description:


This cache is located close to the little-known and seldom-visited Oaks Point Lookout which offers a great view of Packsaddle Gap, the gorge of the Conemaugh River through Chestnut Ridge. It is on State Gamelands #153 in Indiana County approximately four miles east of Blairsville, PA. The suggested starting point for hiking to the cache is from Oaks Point Road at the entrance to a gated emergency access road. Hike in on this road until you locate the Oaks Point Resort at the top of a small hill. You may want to stop here for a swim in the pool ;). Note that the diving board has been removed for liability reasons. From this point, your best bet is to follow your GPS to the cache and Oaks Point. It is also possible to get there via the ATV trails but it's a longer route. The cache is, appropriately enough, in a hollow oaks (sic) tree so don't be sticking your hands in and around any rocks and find a rattlesnake instead. The viewpoint is about 50 yards down (south) from the cache location. Enjoy!

Note: This cache is located on Pennsylvania State Gamelands. During the peak deer season (November 15 - December 15, except Sundays), you must "wear a minimum of 250 square inches of daylight fluorescent orange-colored material on the head, chest and back combined or, in lieu thereof, a hat of the same colored material. The material shall be worn so it is visible in a 360° arc".
