JAHA - Stone Bridge

Add to plan Remove from plan

Bridge made famous by the 1889 Johnstown Flood. Its stone appearance is only visible from this side due to railroad track expansion on the opposite side. The bridge blocked the flood wave from continuing downstream to cause further damage, but it collected the flood debris trapping many of the victims. To view that perspective, cachers should visit the nearby Flames of Hell cache.
The cache is accessible directly from the Iron Street Trail that connects Downtown Johnstown to Cambria City. The Point of Interest is ADA accessible. The cache container itself may require assistance. Parking across Iron Street adjacent to the posted coordinates is limited to JWF employees only. Violators vehicles will be confiscated and installed as test track obstacles for the humvee replacement vehicle, being developed on this site.
This cache may be temporarily disabled and removed during Thunder in the Valley and Flood City Music Festival due to the high concentration of muggles during that period. Point of interest is accessible year-round, but the cache container itself may be inaccessible in winter.
Our JAHA series features six cultural and historical sites in Johnstown and has been placed to demonstrate that micros can be an appropriate container size in some urban settings without being pointless lamppost or guardrail caches. If you enjoy this cache series, try our full size caches.
We consider all micros to be difficult, so we’ve rated each of them as we would see them. Other cachers may find them to be much easier. Please replace exactly as found. Do not drop. Some caches in the series will require more stealth than others. Bring your own pen and nano retrieval tools. Just initial the log. DO NOT OVER-TIGHTEN LID.
If you spend more time looking for the container than you’ve spent enjoying the setting, you’ve missed the point of this cache.
Any log containing spoilers of location/container will be deleted. A hint/spoiler is no longer available due to changes in gmail security implemented by google.
This cache placed with the assistance and permission of Johnstown Area Heritage Association (JAHA) and the Johnstown Redevelopment Authority.
This cache tends to migrate. please replace it in the exact location where you found it.
