Geocache Description:

This cache is a two-part cache. The first part is by a local swimming hole with a nice view of the McNally bridge on Route 219 over the Stonycreek River. This can be accessed taking the Carpenter Park Road, which is found about a quarter mile north of Conemaugh Township School on Route 403.Carpenter Park road will take you to the
Stonycreek River. It has some beautiful waterfalls and in the 1860s through 1900s attracted a Pittsburgh-based group of artists called the Scalp Level Painters headed by George Hetzel. Park and recreation development in the Canyon is being explored, including the possibility of redeveloping a site that the City of Johnstown operated in the 1930s known as Carpenter's Park and extending the Jim Mayer Trail out from Johnstown.
The second part of the cache is a fairly straightforward hike. There is no need to get your feet wet. Feel free to look around the area, as it contains several local swimming holes, although swimming at these holes is not recommended as it can be dangerous. No need to deviate from the path until at the cache.
This being Pennsylvania it would be a good idea to wear orange during hunting season.(most of the Year!)
Please follow the stream up and avoid parking on the road. The idea is the journey, not how fast you can find the cache!
This cache shows off two wonders of man: the McNally Bridge and the mountain at the end of the cache.
