In the Woods Limited Hours Listed on OCNA Only 

Please see the attributes article for more information.

Description   EN   

You are looking for a 0.8L Lock-N-Lock container in the woods.  The hide shouldn't pose a lot of difficulty.  The hike is not long and is mostly on trails.  When seeking this cache, take the main trail and then turn left onto the first major trail you encounter.  It may seem like a good idea to bushwack sooner but the growth is dense.  At least until you hit the swamp...  Stay on the trails until you get close.  The cache is about 300 feet from the trail.

I have included jpeg map of the trail system.  Feel free to use it for all you caching needs in the park.

Parking is available at the posted parking waypoint.  The park is open dawn to dusk.  Please do not night cache!

As always, replace the cache as found and enjoy!

This one is gone.  Since an Eagle Scout made a trail to this tree, its not such a secret place anymore.  That lead to the cache disappearing.  Since the goal of this one was to bring people to this cool, "off the beaten path" tree, it has clearly run its course.  Thanks to all who have visited.

Logging at behest of the owner.  This is the first OC.US cache we found and we did so without using a GPS - it just looked like an interesting location for a cache.

I found this las Fall but some how my logs did not get recorded on this site.

A and I were caching in this excellent park--and found this cache by accident since we were geocaching groundspeak caches and did not know that this cache existed. But we found it nevertheless. It is in an excellent location and we enjoyed finding it very much. Laughing
