User Description

This USGS Benchmark disk is located at the base of the Stone Tower in Allegany State Park. If you can find your way to the Stone Tower (and it is well marked), you will find the benchmark. It is at ground level.

Logging Requirements

Please include photo proof of your visit. Any Found It logs without proof of visit may be deleted. It must be clear from your photos which benchmark was visited, since they can look very similar from a distance. A close up photo showing the markings may be required.
