The cave is developed along bedding planes and is in the Chambersburg Limestone (strike N. 30º E., dip 65º W.) near the contact with the Martinsburg Shale. A similar situation exists for the Fairview Caves, one and one-half miles to the north.
Schetromph Cave is
east of Conococheague Creek and two miles north of Wilson. The entrance
is 40 feet above a large spring that feeds several watercress ponds. Approximately
500 feet of passage has been mapped in this rather sinuous cave. Much
of the passage is very narrow and several places require quite a physical
effort to traverse.
