The Back Mountain Trail is a rails-to-trails project of the Anthracite Scenic Trail Association. The trail follows, as much as possible, the Lehigh Valley Railroad which went from Luzerne through Dallas to Harveys Lake and eventually ended in Mountain Springs in Rickett’s Glen State Park. The railroad was sold in pieces, often to adjacent landowners, after the railroad ceased operations in the 1950’s. Many local geocachers are familiar with the first 2 miles of the trail from Luzerne to Carverton Rd, most of which was not developed by the owners. As more sections become available to ASTA through donation or easement, money is raised to resurface the trail. Volunteers regularly maintain the completed sections of the trail on work days in the Fall and Spring. If you’d like to learn more about the Back Mountain Trail, visit the web page

The cache is located along a new section of the trail not far from the trail and is available to trail users. Parking is available across the road from a sign indicating the trail entrance to this section. The cache is a small 6" x 4" plastic container. Please rehide as you found it. The cache is near a very nice place to have a picnic.
