About This Cartridge

A timeless journey through historical Laurel Hollow Zoo. Announced in 1905 and left mostly untouched since 1912 'til 2009. Somewhat newly rediscovered and being restored as a picturesque modern day park. Offering a storybook hike through an enchanting Appalachian wilderness filled with seemingly ancient towering trees and whimsical vines. Wildlife is abundant throughout this amazingly preserved little secret of WV. Once again, becoming the pride of the community. A place not easily forgotten that you will look forward to sharing with others.
I hope this Wherigo cartridge spurs the imagination for a timeless quest of this parks unique story. Note that this wilderness park sits exactly in the center of the town of Newell, WV , 26050. 

Starting Location

Information Kiosk at the park's western entrance along Rt2, Newell, WV 26050

Found this one with the green ranger. We had already found all of the caches in this nice little park and loved getting the chance to come back and learn even more history. We saw a few muggles but no wildlife while on our adventure. This one had an awesome ending!! Very creative!! Nice job!! Took lots of pictures!! SL TNLN TFTWherigo!! Favorite point awarded!! Found this using our iphone 4.

This is the second wherigo we played today! We really enjoyed this one and learned a lot about the old zoo here on our travels. We had plenty of snow to walk thru and only completed one other geocache in the park today because of it. It was nice to learn about the park and loved the your quide. I will admit I had to guess on the start and one other question that required me to look on the ground. I got pretty lucky with the right answer and didn't have to go back to restart it. We completed this on an iPhone 4S and had no problems. Loved the creativity! Li1gray and lotsagray
