Geocache Description:


This cache is in a very interesting and scenic area near Connellsville, Pennsylvania. The suggested route to the cache passes by the site of the Casparis quarry mine and an excellent view of the Youghiogheny River valley through Chestnut Ridge.

Directions: Turn from Route 119 at McDonalds and follow Pittsburgh Street south through Connellsville until it ends at a T. Turn left and follow a rough gravel road up and out of town for 1.5 miles to a fork in the road. Take the right fork, cross through a stream, and follow this road and your GPS to the cache.

WARNING: The condition of the "road" to the cache from Connellsville is iffy and it generally gets worse as you go. During winter months it will almost certainly be impassible. Park and walk if your vehicle cannot handle it. It is a pleasant walk to the cache from the stream crossing if you can make it that far. Do not approach or enter the mines under any circumstances! Go slow, be careful, and have fun!

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".
