Description   EN   

This multi-cache has a single waypoint that contains offsets to the final. You'll want to bring a pen or pencil to write down the offsets and do your math. :)

I suggest you park at the posted parking co-ordinates near the

Bedford High School as you'll have a very nice walk along a trail
in the woods (the old Country Road) for just under a half of a
mile. There is a sign at the parking spot that says "No
unauthorized use" but walking the trail is authorized. You can find
places to park closer to the first waypoint if you're just
interested in getting a smiley as quickly as possible but you'll
miss a nice trail and walk! :)

We've long been intrigued by the Milford and Manchester Railroad that was only in use for a few short years.

A bit more information on the railroad (owned by the Boston and
Maine Railroad) can be found here:

Nashua City Station: Manchester and Milford Branch

and here:

History of Goffstown, NH: Manchester and Milford Railroad

The single waypoint is placed a few feet away from where the railroad bed crossed the old Country Road in Bedford, NH. The railroad went north from this place before making a turn to the east at Bow Lane to run into the Bedford station. If you look northwest into the field from the waypoint vicinity you should be able to see the old stone culvert over which the train tracks passed.The northern portion of the railroad bed is now part of a farm.

You may or may not hear "moos" or be observed by bovine watchers.
I'm hoping that they don't muggle the waypoint. :)

At the waypoint there is no need to go into the woods past any of the "No trespassing" signs or cross any fences in order to find the waypoint. Please leave the waypoint camouflage in place as otherwise the waypoint will be easily spotted by muggles. This is a popular trail for folks to walk their dogs so be prepared for walkers to show upsuddenly.
