Five County View
The entrance to Laurel Caverns, and therefore its Norman E. Cale Visitors’ Center sits atop Chestnut Ridge, the first ridge of the Allegheny Mountains one encounters when coming from the west. Since there are no more ridges to the west, the Visitor Center’s 2,600 ft. elevation above sea level allows it an uninterrupted view to the horizon. From its observation deck, on a clear day, can be seen the skyline of Pittsburgh, as well as the Pennsylvania counties of Westmoreland, Allegheny, Washington, Greene, and, of course, its home county of Fayette.
