Description   EN   

Just another one that I threw out there for you all to enjoy. This will take you to the top of Akron Falls. Not only will it give you a challenge but it should give you a phenomenal view as well. The terrain difficulty could vary daily depending on the weather and the season. The cache could be located in several locations but the area of the hide should allow you to put in ample time because muggle sightings should be low. Just be careful and stick to the paths. Paths maybe extremely slippery when wet which could be hazardous. Please use good judgement when it comes to bringing younger children to venture here and only cache within your abilities. I don't recommend attempting this at night because of the dangers potentially involved.  Just stay on the paths and enjoy the hunt and the view.  Good luck!!

 

PS: I don't know why I chose the title I did and the trail head can be accessed off of East Ave. near the "No swimming"' sign.

This cache has been found for the first time in slightly over 5 years on this date! I had no idea I was going to be viewing Akron Falls from "the other side". Awesome area, although moderately dangerous, as the sign told me. I have several pics to upload, I haven't resized them as of the time I'm logging the cache. Ourstanding cache, thanks!! It's still in fine shape and dry, by the way.

Stopped by to check things out.  Cache is in good shape and good to go.  Took some pics of my caching neophytes and some falls leapers as well just before the local police put an end to it all.  Police said someone broke their leg last week jumping off of the falls.  Only a matter of time before it turns into a casualty.

I do have another cache at the upper falls.  Coords located on a neighboring competitor website.  Enjoy!!

2 15 November 2010 GOF Didn't find it

Spent some time at zero, but not much. It felt like all the folks in those houses were watching me search. We decided to find some lonely woods to go caching in.

 

For those that don't know the falls just up stream are much more interesting than those you are looking down on from up here.

This cache was a curious stop for us today, as I didn’t really know what to expect. With all the precautions taken, we slowly made our way to the cache location. The coords for us were absolutely perfect, and after some poking, prodding and lowering Chicky down on some sting, we were finally able to sign in on this one.

We have never been here before, so we went tourist hardcore and took tons of pictures while enjoying this amazing view. It was made ever more awesomer by the fact that the fall colors were in full swing. This is a great location, and after ooing and awwing for a good half hour we finally made our way back out.

Thank you for showing us this spot. I would have NEVER known about this little slice of heaven if it wasn’t for this cache!
