BRADFORD, PA – May 16, 2019 – The Allegheny National Forest Visitors Bureau (ANFVB) announces the new McKean County Historical Geo Trail. Fashioned for geo cachers who are passionate about both the outdoors and history, 22 caches are waiting to be discovered along the trail. This geo trail remains active until May 31, 2020.
The official kick-off event for the new McKean County Historical Geo Trail will be Friday, May 17, 2019, from 1 pm to 3 pm at the Kinzua Bridge State Park Visitors Center, 296 Viaduct Road, Mt. Jewett, Pennsylvania. Geo passports for the trail will be available at the kick-off event or they may be downloaded at VisitANF.com/recreation.
To be eligible for the new trackable, geo coin fashioned from black cherry timber for which this area of Pennsylvania is famous, participating cachers will need to locate and record on their geo passport 20 of the 22 unique caches along the McKean County Historical Geo Trail. The artwork on the coin features a stylized Kinzua Sky Walk over an outline of the Pennsylvania Keystone. As a bonus, cachers who post a picture at each location will receive their coin as well as a free copy of the Legends & Lore of the Allegheny National Forest DVD.
Geo coins will be available at the kick-off event for early birds who have completed the trail. Going forward geo coins may be picked up from the Allegheny National Forest Welcome Center at 80 E. Cordon St. in Bradford, Pennsylvania. Geo coins may also be received via mail; simply send your completed McKean County Historical Geo Trail form to ANF Visitors Bureau, PO Box 371, Bradford, Pa. 16701 and they will return your coin free of charge by mail.
