Geocache Description:


Smokey Bear 75th Anniversary GeoTour

Since 1944, Smokey Bear has taught millions of Americans about their role in preventing wildfires. 75 years later, Smokey is celebrating a milestone birthday. Honor him and this timeless message of wildfire prevention by finding all 75 caches in this GeoTour.

About This Specific Location

Both the heritage of early West Virginia and the pioneer spirit of Watters Smith are preserved in the homestead restoration at this 532-acre historical park. This historical park, located in Harrison County, features log cabins, period-accurate buildings and a museum that depicts pioneer life from 1796 to the early 1900s. The grounds are open to picnicking and hiking, and the park also is a popular site for birdwatching.

Finding this cache will be a bit of a hike from the parking lot. The road is paved and on a slight grade but once you leave the road and take the trail it is dirt and mud if wet weather but level.

More About This GeoTour

The Middle-Atlantic Interstate Forest Fire Protection Compact are the Hosts of this GeoTour. We offer several trackable prizes so please use this GeoTour Passport to keep track of your progress.
