Cache Attributes

Kid Friendly In the Woods Historic Site Limited Hours Listed on OCNA Only 

Please see the attributes article for more information.

Description   EN   

This cache will take you along the Western Maryland Rail Trail, which used to be owned by Western Maryland Railroad, and is now managed by Maryland DNR. Although this is only a short portion of the trail, the entire trail covers more than 20 miles and runs almost parallel to the C&O Canal and the Potomac River. You can hike, bike, and skate along this trail. The trail is a paved trail, flat terrain, and is mostly handicapped accesible. The terrain rating for this cache is mainly for the hike to the cache.

The cache will take you to the site of the remains of the old railroad that was used to deliver coal to the area. The confimation code is the second word of the second paragraph on the plaque. Although optional, pictures of you and/or your GPS at the site are very much welcome.

1 24 May 2015 Mr.Yuck Found it

Should I mess with DG, and tell him he never "posted a pic tomorrow"? I will do that too by the way. Lets see if I actually do. Greetings CycleAngela. I intended on a CycleAngela trifecta today, being this, the little church in West Virginia, and the highpoint of Maryland on Terracaching.com. However, I overdid it on my soon to be replaced hip the day before at GW, and the highpoint was NEVER going to happen. I was going to still go for the little church (which is our only listing in WV), but I missed the exit for US 219, and just kept going to Morgantown. So anyhow, I knew that Hancock was legendary for cycling, and now I see why. I hobbled the 3/8 or so of a mile one way from the parking area (where I barely got a spot) to this marker. Very interesting, as is the structure behind it, which hopefully I'll remember to post a pic of. Thanks!

Was "out west" for CAM, MML, Munzees, TC's, and OCNA hides.  This was the 2nd of my 2 outstanding ONCA's.  Glad to finally have the chance to get this one.  Was actually here for a GS cache the weekend that this was submitted.  On the way back to the car, I noticed there was a Mystery Munzee at GZ.

Thanks and Happy Trails!
