Offset multi-cache. You will get muddy. You Will Get Muddy. YOU WILL GET MUDDY. (Ok, you’ve been warned) You will need a flashlight!
This cave is a very popular destination for local cavers and others. I have been through it several times when I lived in the area full time. My mother went through it in her teens, with a couple friends, one flashlight and a dog. NOT the safe way to go caving! This is an offset cache due to poor GPS reception under the rocks.
From parking at N 38 * 54.701’ W 079* 42.553’ go to power pole 9165-297 1/2 (N 38* 54.722’ W 079* 42.491’) from there go 135 feet at a bearing of 47 degrees.
Cache box is a green ammo can. You will need a flashlight, you will get muddy. You will not need caving experience or specialized equipment.
White Nose Syndrome update: At this time there is no indication that this cache is contributing to this problem. If that changes this cache will be archived and removed without notice.
There is a mysterious problem that is causing many bat deaths in several northeastern caves and this winter the problem has spread to West Virginia and Virginia. As a result, a number of caves have been closed by their owners or managers. Additional information about this problem is available at
