Please see the attributes article for more information.

Description   EN   

The posted coordinates  will take to to the parking spot. Walk along the hedgerow on your right and you will find the trailhead.

A small cache hidden in the nature area of Genesee Community College. Trails are free and open to the public. Times are dawn to dusk ONLY. Cache contains a log book . Remember to BYOP! Parking is available @ N43.00.975 W078.08.586 You will see a nature trail sign there. Trail head coordinates are at the bottom of the sign.

You will take a short walk in the Nature Trail area. At the Trail head is a kiosk with information and a map. In a small container there are  brochures showing about 20 points along the trail with information of the flora and fauna of this area. Please use one but make sure to return it so others may use in the future. There are many species of trees plant and wild life in the area. The area can be wet hence the higher terrain rating.

Now to Find the Letterbox. Stand with your back to 13. Look straight ahead about 25 ft. you will see a hollow log. Look inside. Please stamp in and re hide as it was or better. Remember I have this listed on Atlas Quest too.
Do not remove the stamps~!

Sorry Bon Echo, didn't mean to tick you off.  Laughing  On a serious decline, maybe? Geocaching has been on the decline since 2012 I believe, just not as pronounced.

We do often have people find our caches that never log on the website. In this case though, I think they're all Atlas Quest letterboxers, despite that hobby being practically dead these days. Geokrety was a cheap plastic coin in a plastic pouch similar to the ones real Geocoins come in.

There was no GeoKrety tag in the cache and many more than the 3 people who logged online have signed the paper logbook. Just an FYI.

Out doing maintenance on our non-OCNA cache at GCC, so thought I'd grab this while here. Of course, it was a spur of the moment find, so I didn't have our stamp on us. Well, since B wasn't here with me, we will just have to come back together with our stamp... and that way B can find it too. TFTF! We hope you are well, SF7!!  -E
